My Students

My students are curious, energetic six and seven-year-olds who love learning. My students are incredibly resilient learners who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Many are learning to read, write, and solve math problems while also learning English, but all of them are eager to learn and love to come to school. Perseverance is a quality that we discuss throughout the year.

My students are invested in their learning and becoming the best version of themselves.

We are committed to coming to school with happy hearts and positive attitudes each day, ready to learn and try our best. Through rigorous expectations and an engaging classroom environment, my students are pushed to new heights each day. By the end of first grade, it is my goal that they love learning and have a solid foundation for the future.

My Project

It all started in 2016, when I first attended the Get Your Teach On conference in Nashville, Tennessee. Last summer, I was able to attend GYTO's National Conference in San Diego. I am so passionate about this teaching conference because of the inspiration and joy I carry into my classroom as a result.

I am always searching for the best strategies to engage my students in their learning, and this conference inspires so many ideas and strategies.

This conference is unlike any other, and this year it is a four-day event.

At the National Conference, I am able to connect with educators from around the globe and learn tips, tricks and best practices for the 21st-century classroom. I am inspired by the passion these educators have about teaching and life, and I am inspired to do better and be a better teacher for my students.
