My Students

Many of my students have faced difficult life challenges, but still come to school with a smile and positive attitude. Each day, I greet them at our classroom door. I take this time to tell each child that I'm thankful for them coming to school and being a part of our classroom family. Starting each day on a positive note has really increased their enthusiasm for learning.

Their excitement for school is contagious.

This is the reason I wake up each morning and look forward to another awesome day with these exceptional kids.

My Project

Lockdowns are a topic of difficult discussion, but with recent events I feel it's necessary to open the forum. Intruders on any school campus are a possibility, and I want to be as prepared as possible.

As much as I love educating my students, their safety is even more important.

Our District has established lockdown procedures that are to ensure student safety. While I have faith in these procedures, I also want to take additional precautions. I prefer to be overprepared than underprepared. This defense tool, the Intruder Defense System, will provide that additional safety measure by helping to secure our doors.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to keep my students safe.
