My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life and ready to learn. I work hard to ensure my students have a fun and safe learning environment. I want my students to feel as if our classroom is a second home to them and they can be comfortable. I want my students to know that I believe in them but most importantly, to believe in themselves.

Each of my students brings a different vibe and creative way of learning to our classroom.

Many of my students are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping​ to inspire them.

My Project

Teachers have the opportunity to make learning an interactive and exciting experience. The Get Your Teach On National Conference provides teachers with the tools to make this possible! Get Your Teach On (GYTO) is a renowned organization that teaches instructional best practices. By attending this conference, I will learn from top educators how to amp up academic rigor while providing memorable experiences.

Imagine a classroom where students are academically challenged AND having fun?!

As an educator, having this kind of classroom is my goal. The Get Your Teach On National Conference will provide hands-on training that will help me continue to bring magic into my classroom! Meeting and growing with like minded people can really encourage you as a teacher.

Just like in every profession, we deal with negative people and an unwillingness to grow. Being inspired by others who have the same views as you do on education and who love their students can lift your spirit and your heart. It can motivate you when you are ready to give up. The GYTO conference is so much more than a time to learn some thing new, it is also a time to connect professionally and feel the importance of what we are called to do.
