Teaching is my passion. My classroom is a happy place for myself and my students. My students come in with a smile on their faces.
The students come to school to learn, communicate, and have fun.
They are energetic, hilarious, athletic, and eager. They are eager to learn and eager to get new knowledge. I have never met kids who love to read or love to share their thoughts and thinking more than these students.
They are special because they are the leaders of tomorrow. They are worth every extra minute, every extra dollar, and deserve nothing but the best.
I am a huge advocate for calm learning environments. It is very rare that I turn our overhead lights on. When I do the kids ask almost immediately to turn them back off.
I can't wait to hang Edison string lights around the perimeter of our classroom to help with our calm learning environment.
These lights would replace lights around that perimeter that are almost all completely burnt out. I want to give the students a light source that allows us to change the brightness depending on what activity we are doing.
