Teacher Ambassador

Watching a student's eyes light up because you took the time to get to know them on a level outside of being their teacher is amazing. When schools shut down in March due to Covid, my students were devastated that they were not in my classroom everyday and would get on just to talk. That to me, is what teaching is all about, the relationships.

Why I Teach

I teach to touch the lives of my community. I grew up in this community and it molded me into the person I am today. Past teachers are the ones who helped lead me to reach the dreams that I aspired to. I teach because I want to be the stepladder for students to acheive their dreams. I want to make a difference. I want students to know they are capable of anything they set their minds to and that they have my support along the way. I want to teach them to love, to forgive, to strive, and to have courage not just the standards that we are asked to teach. To show them they must lead by example.
