My Students

While middle school students can be emotional and hormonal, being faced with trauma makes them in need of someone who will push them in spite of their setbacks. Creating a classroom culture for students to build community and accountability while nurturing personal and academic success is important! These incredible students attending a Title I school need a teacher who values and encourages a strong home and school connection. Students want respect and want to be heard. This will be evident when you walk into their classroom. I’m committed to preparing myself by attending professional development conferences to learn more. These experiences help me to be the most effective educator and my best self.

My Project

I was recently recognized as a life-long learner! This is who I am and strive to be. Whatever I need to do to better prepare myself to teach and help others has been a thread throughout my life.

It is my desire to seek professional development that will help me to be able to develop as an educator with a national and global perspective in education.

Having additional certifications will help me to work with families and teach students anywhere.

This training can be used to help teach English to newcomers or to use a TEFL certification when I volunteer abroad during my summers to share my love of the English language to those interested in becoming proficient in English.

Acquiring the skills necessary to learn, understand, and collaborate across cultures is essential for me to be able to be an effective, educator with a global growth mindset. Sharing my passion with students brings learning to real life!
