Congratulations as Elementary Site Teacher of the Year 2023-2024
School should be a safe and fun place for a child. I believe strongly in the Golden Rule and I think that if teachers expect to be shown respect from their students, they should treat their students with respect as well. I feel that respect is a two-way street. I respect my students and they in turn show me respect. I am also very open with my students. I tell them that I care about them, and because I care, I work hard to make sure they learn the required skills, such as reading and math, but I also teach my students life skills. I talk to them about choices and attitude. I want my students to know that even through they have no say or choice in certain situations that happen to them, they do have a choice in how they choose to deal with it and the attitude they choose to have concerning their situation. I use discipline in my classroom, not punishment. I want my students to learn from their mistakes and make better choices because they know the difference between right and wrong. I want every student I teach to leave my classroom knowing they are cared for and that I think they are a person of value. I want them to leave feeling confident and self-assured so that they are ready to go into the future with their heads held high.
