My Students

As an elementary teacher in Texas, my colleagues and I are consistently looking for exciting and inventive ways to get our students engaged and learning. This is sometimes a struggle when working with students who lack the motivation to try their best. I strongly believe in offering a warm, welcoming and engaging atmosphere where all students feel safe and successful. I want to not only focus on their academic strengths, but also be a positive role model in their lives. My goal is to provide a learning environment that prepares them for the twenty-first century and beyond.

At such a young age, some of my students have to juggle inconsistent situations at home; especially after Hurricane Harvey abruptly swept our small town in August 2017.

Several of my students' families are still living in wind/water damaged homes, while some are still displaced completely.

Working in a Title One, low-income school sometimes can be challenging for both the students and the teachers. Although our district does their best to provide everything we need, we fall short financially when compared to other schools across the state of Texas.

My Project

Children need authentic and multiple opportunities to share their creations with their classmates. One great way to do this is through an “Author’s Chair”. When students finish a piece of writing or want an opinion on their creation, they can celebrate by reading it out loud to the class! It is always a child’s choice if they want to share or not.

There are many benefits to sharing an “original work of art”.

Students feel ownership of their writing. Children hear other great examples. Kids make the connection that writing communicates to others. They must read what they write! Children celebrate their accomplishments.
