This is my third year in the elementary classroom. Before working with children this age, I taught high school and middle school music and learned the value of community involvement and student leadership. Before that, it was students to whom I served lunch and breakfast that inspired me to finish my education degree. It was students who inspired me to teach and it will always be students that I put first.
Science teaches us that there is no such thing as cold; there is only the absence of heat. A classroom will never thrive in the absence of love. With the transformational energy of love and compassion at our beckon, and a deepening commitment to our children, there is no way we can fail.
In service to our students,
"The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."
