My Students

Teaching is a work of heart. I had amazing teachers growing up. Fifteen years ago, I became a teacher to be like the amazing teachers I had. Today I am teaching amazing and exceptional students to become lifelong learners and to persevere through their hardships. My school is a Leader in Me school. We teach our students leadership skills and guide them to become leaders in the classroom, in the school, and around the community.

Teaching isn't an easy job; however, the smiles, the laughs, the light bulb moments are all positive signs that my leaders are growing and learning!

My classroom is full of eager leaders. They come to school to learn, play, and create. They are witty, funny, and most of all, amazing! My leaders’ needs vary in severity and area. They may have behavioral needs, academic needs, and/or social needs - each as unique as the individual learner. However, their ambitions and desires are no different than their peers. We are different but not less. Please join me in supporting our future.

My Project

What do you do with an idea? Do you leave it behind? Do you hold on to it? Do you love it? Do you get rid of it? I recently read this story, What Do You Do with an Idea, by Kobi Yamada to my students and they loved it! It was a perfect read aloud as I begin to use a "Design Based Learning" approach with my students.

Design based learning is an approach that begins with a challenge of creating something that has never before been seen, and then using this creation to guide, build, and integrate concepts and skills so students get a more authentic learning experience.

The art supplies I am requesting will be added to our "happy trash”. Happy trash is basically that, trash or recycled items that may seem to have no purpose but is very useful for our design challenges. The reason for happy trash is to push the limits of my students’ imagination to create something out of nothing, or never before seen. The storage bins will help us keep our art supplies organized. The stand up desks will provide students more space to design and the freedom to move around. They will not be stuck at a chair/table while they work.
