Years of experience
Students this year
I am a single mother of an amazing girl named, Sami. Sami has taught me so much more than I expected when she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. It has made me a better person and a better teacher. Healthy relationships with my 8th graders are my number one priority. After that is established, it is a subtle transfer to focus on curriculum and the end goal is to be in successful in both areas.
How will funding help my students?
I can think of many ways funding would help my students! I teach 8th grade Reading at a Title 1 school in Moore, OK. At least half of my students do not ever bring even the basic supplies. I’m always looking for new ways to teach and keep them engaged. We play a lot of games to teach different concepts, which all purchases come out of my pocket. For example, to pay to go to a conference to learn new ideas, then purchase the accompanying book, then materials needed. Books are another way funding would help. I like to do novel studies and I try to keep up with what my kids are interested in, it would be great to buy a class set of newer novels.
