My Students

I am a proud Second Grade teacher at FSH Elementary School. I am blessed to teach the most amazing students whose families serve and protect our country every day. My students are full of energy and excitement to learn. My students are a wonderful mix of various backgrounds, ethnicities, and experiences. My students have different learning needs and styles. To best meet the needs of my students I want to further my education to better prepare myself to teach to the individual learning needs in my classroom. "Get Your Teach On" is a fun and engaging conference to motivate and empower teachers to be their best. The conference provides up-lifting speakers that encourage teachers to never settle for ordinary. I want to go above and beyond for my students and learning new strategies will help me accomplish this goal. It is my passion to teach children and it is an honor to teach military students.

"Children of the World, Blown to all corners of the World, We Bloom Anywhere!" -Military Child Quote

"Our vision is to promote a quality education, where every student is a learner, every learner is a graduate, and every graduate is a success" (FSHISD District).

My Project

This national conference will offer the most research-based strategies that will light my classroom on fire! It is a one-of-a-kind experience and I will get to collaborate with other educators as they share their passion and enthusiasm for education while learning from their tips, tricks, best practices, and teacher secrets to building a successful, engaging, and rigorous classroom.

I know I will leave the conference empowered, motivated, and prepared to create dynamic lesson experiences that will challenge my students and leave them hungry for more.

Teaching is my passion, not my job. My classroom is a safe and caring environment where my students are in engaged in challenging and meaningful work. My students build good character, competence, and creativity. Through effective professional development I become more capable and confident in myself and the meaningful work I create for my students. This project will cover the cost of my conference registration, lodging, food, and transportation.
