My Students

I teach the best kiddos in the world! Second graders encompass a sense of wonder and excitement that makes a classroom come to life! My students work as a team to learn through discovery, creativity, hard work, and collaboration all while showing kindness to each other as a class family. They are what makes me love my job so much!

My Project

A classroom is a place of learning, but it should also be a place to have fun! The use of rewards and incentives in a classroom motivates students, promotes greater classroom engagement, and puts a smile on a student’s face!

When a student is recognized for their achievements with a reward, it builds confidence in the student which ignites the drive to give their best.

These items will make a difference in my classroom! With classroom incentives, student performance improves, the classroom climate is a positive one, and school is a fun place to be!
