My Students

Albert Einstein said, "Play is the highest form of research". I love this quote because it makes me think of my amazing and playful third graders!

We go to school in a rural area, and my class consists of a diverse population including Native Americans from our nearby reservation, as well as a large Hispanic population that aides in our farming communing.

100% of my students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Though their environment may not be conducive to learning, they have an insatiable love of learning.

I am fortunate to work with students that love to be at school and learn each day. I love to be at school with them, and I want to provide them every opportunity to succeed!

My Project

I would love to have the opportunity to attend the Get Your Teach On Conference this coming summer. Some of my fellow teachers have attended this conference. They have come back so excited to share their experiences. I know this would be very beneficial and motivating to me as a teacher.

I want my kids to love school and they all deserve a teacher who is enthusiastic and excited to teach.

I am a strong believer in being an enthusiastic teacher. I want my kids to want to come to school and be excited to learn. Being inspired and motivated by a professional development is something I am always striving to capitalize on for my students and my classroom.

I would love the opportunity to attend this amazing conference. I know by attending this conference it will get me started on a fresh new school year. The strategies and motivational speakers really are inspirational. I can not think of a better way to start off the year.
