My Students

I have been teaching for 10 years and every year it just gets better and better! Since moving to my new school, I have been more on fire than ever as a teacher and I have 18 little people to thank for that.

My students are extremely diverse and come from all walks of life.

They don't let anything stop them and they never give up! They are passionate and sweet, they have such a zest for life and it is so inspiring! They love to learn and they love to help each other on that path. We have become such a little family!

Their walks of life are all different, some come from single parent homes or are foster children. Some have emotional disabilities and others are gifted and talented. I have students recovering from losing a parent and others who are embracing a new sibling at home. Their paths are different and some are harder than others, however they inspire me daily to be the best that I can be for them.

They make me want to be even better tomorrow both professionally and personally as well.

They deserve the world and more!!

My Project

Can you picture walking into your classroom on a normal Monday and when you open the door, your classroom has been transformed into a STEM science lab or Andy's Room from Toy Story? How excited would you be for learning that day? That excitement is what I want to create for my students with the backdrops, backdrop stands, decor lights, and other decorative items that will help create that excitement.

In the words of Adam Dovico, teachers "have the responsibility to create experiences" for their students and through the use of classroom transformations I can bring the world of learning to life for my students in so many fun ways!

Classroom transformations allow teachers to create an environment that brings student engagement to the highest level and enriches student learning with rigorous content. Hands-on, interactive materials will provide students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of many of the topics within the main subjects of 2nd grade, that can often seem boring or mundane.
