My Students

I love my students and I love teaching! My students come from all walks of life, some a little more challenging than others. Therefore, I try to create a warm, loving, and safe environment in my classroom. I try to make learning fun!

Each day I greet my students at the door with a smile and a hug.

They usually come in like the wind and are excited to learn. With that being said I try my best to grow as a teacher, and to learn different ways to keep that excitement and love for learning alive in my classroom. I do this by educating myself through reading and attending conferences.

My Project

Funding will allow me to attend an amazing workshop, where I will be inspired by one of my favorite teachers. I live in a small rural town and I am not able to attend workshops of this magnitude, most of the workshops are in bigger cities. Attending Get Your Teach On by Deanna Jump would be a dream come true!

I’ve been teaching for twenty five years and I am always looking for ways to be inspired and motivated.

I am currently teaching at the kindergarten level. I have heard so many great things about this workshop. I would feel blessed to be able to go!
