"My students inspire me in so many ways. Really, my students drive me to do my best for them every day. My biggest joy is when I hear, "I never used to like reading, but now I do!" When I have helped a student discover the joy of a book, I am completely fulfilled. Watching students work through personal struggles to be the very best versions of themselves is incredible, and to be a part of supporting them through that process, there is no greater gift."
i'm originally from
Lake Havasu is where my family is located. I graduated from Lake Havasu and attended college in Lake Havasu. This is my community.
I MOVED TO LAKE HAVASU BECAUSE
The friendly people no matter where you go, always a smile and a hello!
PERSONAL INTERESTS AND/OR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
In my spare time, you will find my nose in a book. I love camping with my family or escaping to the cool mountains or ocean.
I WAS INSPIRED TO BE A TEACHER BECAUSE
I have wanted to teach from the time I was a child. My biggest joy is growing readers. I have an absolute passion for reading and learning and love passing that on to my students.
Dream classroom item: Four Chromebook Laptops
These last four Chromebook laptops and storage will complete a class set that I have been working on for two years. My class is using Google Classroom as a format for submitting assignments and tests. We are also able to use the laptops for research and learning websites. Student engagement and excitement for learning has increased tremendously since incorporating more technology into the classroom.
