"My students insipire me with their excitement to learn."
I MOVED TO LAKE HAVASU BECAUSE
I love the small town feel of LHC and enjoy being close to my family, who moved here while I was still in college.
First year teacher
PERSONAL INTERESTS AND/OR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
I love boating on our beautiful lake and spending time with family.
I WAS INSPIRED TO BE A TEACHER BECAUSE
I am passionate about empowering students to take ownership of their learning at an early age and become confident about their ability.
Dream classroom item: One large carpet for our community space at the front of the classroom
My students come to the carpet to hear their peers read a book, but right now there is no designated space for them to sit and they are often spread out or too close. A carpet with specific seating squares would allow my students to feel welcomed to the carpet and like they have a spot of their own, while also allowing them to be mindful of personal space.
