I became a teacher for one simple reason, I couldn’t think of a better job! I not only enjoy working with children but I also love the challenges that come with being a teacher. I learn just as much if not even more than my students. I hope to challenge my students to try new things, take some risk, and take pride in all that they know.
I have been teaching for ten years in with students varying in age, learning abilities, and cultures. I have had many rich learning experiences as well as opportunities to try new technologies. I have a strong back ground in science and technology as well as in music. I hope to create an environment in my classroom where students are getting a lot of hands on learning as well the ability to move around the room to share with classmates their thoughts and ideas. I like to make learning a fun and enjoyable experience while making it meaningful to the students. I know that we can achieve and even surpass our goals this year!
I love spending time with my family. I have four children of my own ages 16, 14, 13 and 12. We like to do all sorts of fun things together. Some of our favorite activities include bike riding, gardening, camping, swimming, and fishing. I appreciate other hobbies like scrapbooking, painting, drawing, composing music, cooking, and OF COURSE READING!
