My Students

My students are the most important part of my career. They are the reason I wake up every day. They make me change how I teach every year because they are always so different. I love the challenge of making my teaching right for each individual.

I feel very strongly that when a child feels safe and loved, they will do anything to achieve the common goal - academic gains.

My number 1 goal each year is that the kids are excited to come to school each day. If I can foster an environment that is happy, I know they will work hard in all that they try.

Personally, I thrive in a comfortable environment, physically. I know that by putting in small things like smells, low lighting for writing time, and curtains, kids feel like school is their second home. I want them to feel this way. I loved hearing students come into my classroom and say, "It's like a house in here!" Hearing that made me feel like I had achieved the small goal of bringing comfort to my class.

My Project

I consider our classroom the kids' second home. They are here for a large part of their day, most days of the week. We use our space for a full learning experience. With a certain learning environment, I've found students take more risks and collaborate as they feel comfortable in their physical space. Not only will they feel at home, they will also get the most from the tech offered and the way information is presented to them. Flexible seating in various chairs or the floor serve as the most popular seating besides a table or desk. We need more choices because I've found students enjoy sitting belly down on the carpet propped up with a pillow during all subjects, especially during independent or partner work.

Help make this our home!

A microphone will enhance the level of engagement and sharing in our class. The mail sorter will help students know what's theirs. The power strip will charge all of our devices. These minor tools will go a long way for years to come! Thank you so much for your support!
