My Students

I am one of the lucky few who falls in love with their job for a different reason every day. From the hilarious weekend updates during our daily Morning Meeting to the having-a-rough-morning hugs and everything in between. I am currently teaching a 3rd/4th grade combination classroom and will be wrapping up my 7th year in teaching this June. I fell in love with teaching because of my constant curiosity for the world around me and I’m lucky enough to share this thirst for new knowledge and continued learning experiences with my amazingly talented students. Because of the nature of a combination classroom, it is extremely important to me to make sure I’m not only meeting the needs of my students but also challenging and engaging them to the fullest extent. I hope to provide a rich and powerful learning environment for my students each day. They are all powerful, brilliant, thoughtful, and compassionate kids and I feel very blessed to be a part of each of their learning adventures.

My Project

As a life-long learner, I envision a classroom where my students crave new knowledge and are eager to strengthen, challenge, and/or reform previous learnings. If I am asking my students to come into our classroom ready to learn and challenge themselves every day, then it is important for them to know that I have the same expectation of myself. In order to be the best teacher for my students, I would love the opportunity to attend the “Get Your Teach On” National Conference in San Diego. This incredible conference is the opportunity of a lifetime for any teacher.

Our students today deserve a classroom grounded in intentional teaching, engagement across all content areas, and acceptance of one another as life-long learners.

The Get Your Teach On conference would not only support my classroom model, it would revive my teaching strategies in both literacy and mathematics. Part of the conference specifically focuses on nonfiction writing, which can ultimately be quite dry for students; however, I will spend half of the day learning how to retrain myself and my students to think of nonfiction writing in a new light and acquire tools to increase engagement, which ultimately leads to increased performance and motivation.

I would be extremely grateful for the opportunity to attend this renowned conference and to supply my future classrooms with the love of learning and excitement for new knowledge that they deserve.
