I think she is the teacher that has inspired me the most in the school year. She has really helped me the most with my writing and reading that I will need for the future.  She is one of the best teachers I have had. I am very thankful to have had the two years that I did with her. I hope she wins and I want to thank her for teaching me the things she did to help me be prepared for my future.

Academically he is thriving. Landon is kind, compassionate, and willing to help his peers. Landon is in leadership and offers "peer tutoring" to my Intervention learners during Flex. He explains the equation, and when the learner gets an answer correct, they do a handshake and celebrate the victory. This has been so special to watch as an educator.

I love teaching because it is so satisfying to know I am having an impact on a student's life. I teach math and I love math. I recognize that a lot of students don't love math; however, I am passionate about explaining the concept in a way they can understand and connect it to everyday life. I love teaching students how to think and see their confidence grow as they work through problems.
