I am blessed to be entering my fourth year of service to the students at Gamewell Middle School after teaching elementary school for many years and working in various other public service fields. Currently, I am teaching 6th grade English Language Arts (reading and writing skills). Reading is a personal passion of mine that I am so excited to venture through the artistic beauty of literature with my students this year!
Favorite Educational Quote and Why: "A person is a person, no matter how small." This registers to me, as a teacher, because children need to be recognized as individual people, who have legitimate thoughts, feelings and concerns. We often over look the importance of their thoughts and opinions. This quote keeps me grounded.
Why I Became An Educator: I became an educator because building a future for kids that know that who they are as a person literally changes the world, is important. I struggled in school, as a student. I work diligently to create an environment where my students find success through their own talents and interest.
