My Students

My students love to learn, and I love to help them learn in a fun and exciting way! They love to be hands-on and are truly excited to come to school each and every day to learn.

They are curious, energized, and excited every day!

My job, as their teacher, is to ensure that all students learn and to foster their love of learning.I teach in a small community. We have great school morale and students are always put first!

My Project

Growing up I can remember begging my parents for a quarter for my chance at a mystery prize in the vending machine at the local pizza place. The excitement of putting a quarter in, turning the knob, and waiting for my prize to drop was almost unbearable! I want to bring this excitement into my classroom!

My incentive system this year will be the same vending machine and quarter idea.

The balls will be filled with no homework passes, free ice creams, lunches with me, and other amazing prizes!

This project is for the vending machine, containers, and some inspirational quotes to decorate the area! I cannot wait to see this project come to life! I have my quarters ready!
