So, those are the facts at a glance, but what's most important is that I LOVE MY STUDENTS & LOVE PREPARING MEANINGFUL LESSONS FOR THEM. When they walk through my classroom door, whatever is going for me personally is put on hold, and they have my attention and heart. Seeing my students GROW IN THEIR LEARNING & MATURITY thrills me. Not only do I get to see them make strides in writing and reading, but also I get to see them grow in relationships and extra-curricular skills . . . and cheer them on! My classroom is a place for all us to try new things and learn what works and what doesn't work. Oh, and what definitely works for me = fun music, hugs, lots of encouragement and seeing the "lightbulb" go on for my students!
Excited about another awesome year!
