My Students

I love teaching, to every single student. I have felt called to teaching for as long as I can remember, it's truly where I feel most fulfilled. It has been such an honor serving in this field, and helping children see their potential. I have been blessed to meet incredible students along the way who have a great hunger to learn. They desire for someone to believe in them, to keep believing in their destiny.

My students are smart, funny, kind, and compassionate; they are full of strength, and full of confidence.

I love seeing them grow in knowledge and in character as they learn more about the world around them.

They work hard at reaching their objectives, and never give up! They learn how to persevere through some of the deepest and darkest personal circumstances, all while working hard in class. I have a great admiration for my students, and feel so blessed to help contribute to their little lives, even if it's just a year at a time.

My Project

“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we (students) experience much of our world.”

-David Warlick, educator

The Silhouette electronic cutting tool can be used in our classroom to help facilitate the process of learning and creation. Our classroom family is one creative bunch. We use a variety of art mediums in our room, and having a Silhouette in our room will not only assist students in creating art but it will allow them to have hands-on experience with a program and a system that is used by engineers, architects, and many world-renowned maker spaces.
