2nd Grade Teacher

My Why Story

I wanted to become a teacher, because I love learning and want to help others find that same love. I wanted to bring the same joy and excitement to my students that my teachers gave to me when I was in elementary school. I want my classroom to be a place of knowledge, love, curiosity, exploration, pride, confidence, and acceptance and I believe in a strong classroom community. I want a child to WANT to come to school and believe that they are capable! I want students to feel like they are “home” when they walk into our classroom, that they matter, that their ideas are important, and that they are loved! I also enjoy watching a child learn new information or understand a concept that they may have been struggling with before. A student’s “a-ha” moment gets me every time!
