STARLINE | kindergarten
from: Kalamazoo, MI
"My students inspire me to be the best teacher, and the best person, I possibly can."
I MOVED TO LAKE HAVASU BECAUSE
Warm weather, beautiful, scenery, great people, and a small town atmosphere.
PERSONAL INTERESTS AND/OR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
I am a writer, and I have a sci-fi/fantasy book published in 2009. The title is Adventure to Raconia. I am a 3rd degree black belt in taekwondo, and I have taught it for six years. in 2013, I helped coach a team of students, including my daughter, that competed in the National Taekwondo Tournament in Chicago, IL
I WAS INSPIRED TO BE A TEACHER BECAUSE
I want every child to believe they are special and that they can be anything they want.
dream classroom item: Chromebooks
I came from a school in Michigan that used Chrome Books as part of their reading/literacy stations on a daily basis. We live in a technology age, and I saw first hand how student can use learning websites to dramatically improve their reading comprehension. I would love to have enough for all of my students to use one every day, if that seems like a lot, then perhaps six, to use at a learning station.
