I have always had a passion for teaching. I can remember my parents getting old school desks and I would set them up and make my brother and sister go to school. My passion for children and teaching stayed with me always but because of my school loans and the pay of teachers, I went into another field.
Somehow I found my way right into teaching after I got my bachelors in Psychology? The pay for teachers has not increased but my determination to make a difference and use my talent has. I could not see myself doing anything other than working with amazing children everyday.
I hope to eventually make my way into the public school system and hopefully help schools in proverty stricken areas. I want to be able to give any child, good quality education regardless of where they live.

I’m getting a brand new classroom!! I’m terrified!! I’m going to be teaching 3s but I’m having to start over from scratch. I really want to prove that prek and preschool teachers ARE vital in these littles lives and I want to give them the best classroom. I don’t necessarily need funding for things to buy to decorate but I need help with buying supplies to make my decorations.. I think that way it is more personal and they get to see my creative side. I am a mom of two so it’s definitely a struggle. I just want to see my kids eyes light up when they are learning something new…or when they remember something they’ve learned!

I hope I can take classes while summer is rolling in, to better my education so I can teach others. You can never know enough information and I pray I can come up with enough funds to pay for some additional classes. I hope to take classroom management, early childhood education and some safety courses. I’m really tight on money to go back to take some classes. I think my job as an educator is so important and I should always take opportunities to learn when they are given.
