My Students

My students get up each morning because they're part of a classroom family. As a teacher in a low income/ high poverty (94%) school we strive to meet the needs of each child and make a point to wish our missing students well before beginning our academics. Despite the many hardships they may face, I am aiming to keep an inviting collaborative atmosphere and provide my students with meaningful experiences to fuel their lifelong learning.

My students are a collaborative creative family of problem solvers.

They like having a choice, love reading nonfiction, and thrive on lots of positive attention. Many of them are in a single or generational household and receive free breakfasts, lunches, and healthy snacks at school based on their social economic status.

Things out of their control may prevent them from life experiences many of us see as "typical." After I gather them from breakfast, I focus on having them realize their potential and guide them to grow academically and socially while under my care. And, to realize they can certainly control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a caring and creative way, I am thrilled to inspire our future learners.

My Project

At the Get Your Teach On conference in San Diego, I hope to come away with new techniques and renewed confidence to transform my teaching and classroom. I am always seeking ways to keep my teaching fresh, effective, and engaging for my students. One of the premises of the Get Your Teach On conference is to create a classroom environment where students want to be, not a place where they have to be. The speakers are experts in the classroom and provide a unique environment for participants to truly see and feel what engagement is.

I want my students to bounce into the classroom every day excited and ready to see what I have in store for them.

Hope King, the author of Elementary Shenanigans, is one of the event sponsors. She is well known for her complete classroom transformations. From changing desks into dinosaur jeeps and going on "adventures" through the content areas, to creating a tea party straight out of Wonderland for her students to enjoy, her work is inspirational. Deanna Jump, the author of Mrs. Jumps Class, is the cosponsor. Deanna is an award-winning Kindergarten Teacher who has been featured on CNN, MSNBC and more. Both are passionate about helping other teachers reach their full potential to truly make a positive impact in the lives of their students. Thank you for supporting my continued professional development.
