My Students

I teach English to 6th graders in Kansas. These students are filled with passion for reading and writing! Their ability to tell stories is contagious, and I can't wait to help them take their passion to the next level. My students are in their first year of middle school because our building is comprised of 6th - 8th graders. They are full of energy and so eager to learn at this age.

I have taught this age for 20 years because they are still sweet and a little dependent, yet they are very capable of doing a ton of learning on their own!

I am so passionate about middle school students, and I love what I do!! My students come from a variety of backgrounds from new Americans, military families, and students who just desire to see a bigger part of the world. Please help me help them to make their dream come true.

My Project

My ELA students all have unique passions to share their voices. They are excited and motivated anytime an opportunity comes up for them to tell their own digital story. My students deserve to have their learning opportunities to be as fun and as creative as a trip to Disney World. They also deserve a teacher who wants to bring that magic to the classroom. Thankfully, there is a professional development opportunity to help me accomplish this.

I will be learning how Disney creates experiences centered around digital storytelling.

My learning will take me all through the Disney parks to learn inquiry based teaching strategies from the greatest storytellers on Earth!

Our instructors have created a DREAM professional development to help us take these new skill sets and apply them into the classroom. I will leave this opportunity with a new set of resources and activities that I can implement immediately this fall. Thank you for partnering with me in this professional journey.
