A New Beginning

Since I was in 1st grade, my dream was to teach in my home district where I fell in love with education.  I have great pride for my hometown and a strong passion for giving back to the community that built me.  All of the memories, learning experiences, and connections helped shape me into the teacher I am today.  I am so grateful for the principals, leaders, teachers, and parents that supported me during my first 2 years of teaching.  I still keep in touch with many of them because I value our relationship.  However, a new chapter has started in my teaching career.

For the 2015-2016 school year I am excited to take my teaching experiences into a {full day} Kindergarten classroom in North Carolina.  As many of us are moving forward with change this upcoming school year, strive to make each day count by modeling a growth mindset and being a lifelong learner.  Let your passion be your fuel.  I am so excited to finish setting up the classroom and meet my students at the end of the month.
Remember, home can be in more than one place.  Most importantly, make your classroom a home worth spending time in.  Our students need a positive, welcoming environment each school year.  

My next blog post will be a classroom reveal.  Stay tuned.
