I started my career teaching 1st grade in a district near my hometown. I loved my school and my sweet students and families, but after I married my husband we moved to Frisco (a district that I knew values were based on creating lifelong learners). Upon moving, I was offered a job in 2nd grade at a school in my new community!!!! This will be my 3rd year teaching 2nd grade and I absolutely have fallen in love with this age.
I believe it is my job as an educator to provide tools for students, foster their independence so that they become risk takers, support them so that when they fall down they are not scared to get back up, and create a love for learning while bridging understandings among different concepts taught throughout the year.
