"Kids don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are." -Jim Henson
Years of experience
Students this year
I've always wanted to be a teacher. It has been my calling since I was young. I love leading students to find answers for themselves, to build their confidence in their abilities, to see those moments of understanding, and most of all to show them that they are loved and cared for. It is important to me to build long term relationships with my students so they know that I will always be there for them. I have worked with kids in summer camps and schools since I was 16 and I can't imagine doing anything else with my life. Kids make life fun.
How will funding help my students?
I use a lot of my personal money to keep the claim going. From pencils to seating options, from dry erase markers to notebooks, I'm constantly shoveling money to help ensure students are successful.
