My Students

I am going into my 2nd year of teaching this year and I think I am more excited this year than I was my first year. Last year was amazing! I had a classroom full of bright, curious, diverse learners. I loved each of them just as I love my own kids. Now that it is summer break, I have caught myself on many occasions longing for more time with them. I will often contact parents to check in on them, and I’ve even had opportunities to see some of them too.

Next year will be no different than the last.

I have huge plans for my class. I have spent my breaks reading and researching how to be the best teacher I can possibly be for them. Through my research, I have learned new strategies and techniques to use to promote success prompted by myself, but achieved by the student. I look forward to utilizing everything I have learned, learning more, and loving kiddos for as long as possible.

My Project

Any professional development I have attended has always helped myself and my students in more ways than I can possibly list. I love hearing ideas, thoughts, and research from different aspects. I also enjoy taking time to see things about the classroom and teaching profession from different points of view.

I am addicted to bettering myself- for students, my children, myself, and the future of all of the above!

There is no doubt in my mind that GYTO Conference would tremendously help me professionally. I have done independent research on many of the topics that will be discussed, so it will almost be an awestruck moment to see and hear these things in person.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through my wishes. An I sincerely appreciate, any help that is given, from the bottom of my heart.
