My Students

I love teaching, to every single student. I have felt called to teaching for as long as I can remember, it's truly where I feel most fulfilled. It has been such an honor serving in this field, and helping children see their potential. I have been blessed to meet incredible students along the way who have a great hunger to learn. They desire for someone to believe in them, to keep believing in their destiny.

My students are smart, funny, kind, and compassionate; they are full of strength, and full of confidence.

I love seeing them grow in knowledge and in character as they learn more about the world around them.

They work hard at reaching their objectives, and never give up! They learn how to persevere through some of the deepest and darkest personal circumstances, all while working hard in class. I have a great admiration for my students, and feel so blessed to help contribute to their little lives, even if it's just a year at a time.

My Project

Hi! Welcome to my page! After 15 years away from the field of teaching, I'm back! I have lived an incredible life journey! I've been home raising my kiddos, and 1 adult. I moved across the country, went back to school, and will now be teaching! Nothing excites my heart more than to teach. It's what I've been called to do, and where I am most fulfilled. I am passionate about learning centers in all content areas and creating an environment that reflects engagement, inclusiveness, love and support. I chose my classroom rug for its color and handprints. I love that it reflects all colors and has the ability to create a comfy learning environment. I plan to offer alternative seating in our learning nook, where the classroom rug will serve as cushion as opposed to a hard floor. I also chose several pocket charts to utilize in my classroom along with many everyday items. I love using pocket charts! They help me engage students and the options are endless to an ever evolving classroom. Finally, stools! I love offering additional seating. This helps take the daily pressure off my students as they feel they have options to move about. I am ready to get back to what I love to do, changing lives and helping kids see their potential and reach their goals. Encouraging them along the way and helping them to discover learning in a fun and engaging way is my heart. Would you please consider helping me get started...again...for the second time?! I have carefully and purposefully chosen supplies that will make a HUGE difference in my classroom. I want YOU as a partner, to help me change the lives of the future, one year at a time!
