My Students

I am a mainly middle school math teacher in a very small school located in Southern MN. This is my second year teaching, and both years have been spent here. I am currently working on receiving my masters degree in Mathematics Teaching and will soon be licensed to teach all grades K-12!

Our building is a Pre-K through 12 building.

The school is a Title 1 school, so students come from all sorts of backgrounds, mainly low-income households. They are extraordinarily full of energy and always have something new up their sleeves! Working in a small school is great and I love getting to know everyone in almost the whole school on a very personal level, and being able to teach them several years in a row.

Being so new to teaching, and staying in the same school I have had very limited opportunities to view different classrooms and see different approaches to teaching, or help others with the knowledge that I have! I know there is so much more out there in the world for me to take advantage of to continue learning and bettering my practice to help students in my classroom and beyond!

My Project

I will be traveling to Belmopan, Belize for 3 weeks in June and July with Limited Resource Teacher Training. I will be working on a team of teachers from all across the world to help provide training to the teachers in Belmopan. The Fellowship will allow me to have a practical leadership experience as I will plan and lead professional development for other teachers, so this will be an extension to their education.

I will develop great leadership abilities through providing these trainings, and cannot wait to continue to learn about teaching myself from my colleagues and even those I will be providing trainings to!

I can't wait to come back to my classroom after and be able to share my experiences with my students and colleagues. I believe that I will become a much more confident and successful educator through participation in this program.
