“The best teachers are those that tell you where to look but not what to see”.
Years of experience
Students this year
I will never forget how i came to be a teacher. I was a little girl going through a very tough time and my first grade teacher (Mrs. Litton) did every thing she could to keep me above water. I wanted to be just like her when i grew up. I was born to a 16 year old mother and i am a first generation college student. I worked hard, put myself through college, and have been making Mrs. Litton proud ever since. The growth i see in not only my kids, but in myself every year is incredible and makes it all worth it.
How will funding help my students?
I am general Ed certified but i work in behavior. My goal is to improve behavior by means of positive reinforcement and that can get expensive. I buy food for kids that are hungry (this causes more behavior than you’d think), prizes for kids that do a good job, and sticker charts that keep kids on track.
