About Me and Resources

 

My Journey as a Teacher

I was 18 when I graduated college and highschool in the same year. I wanted to become a teacher for as long as I could rememeber. I started out as a teacher at a little school in Florida. I was a preschool assistant for one year before having my own classroom. I taught there for another two years before getting an offer to have my own second grade classroom in the Washington Prepatory Academy. I have been teaching at this school for a year now and am so excited to have a  new group of second graders underneath my care,

Letter to the Students

Dear Students

I am so very excited to have you in my class. English was and is my first love growing up and i would love to instill that love in each one of you. I had such a hard time with school when i was younger. My teachers were not involved in my work and i felt alone doing it. I did not start to like school till i was in college in high school. That was a game changer for me, but i do not want it to be that way for you. I would like you to have a strong understanding of school and like it before getting to college. I would like you to be grounded in the work that you do and be proud of it. With these things in mind I am so excited and proud to be your teacher. With that being said if you have any problems or questions in class work please contact me. If an assignment does not make sense to you please contact me. If you do not have understanding of a concept please contact me. I am here to help you and i want your learning experience to be one that is full of understanding. Below i have resources for you as the student to view if you need help. If you are struggling please contace me and we will view these resources together.
