What brought you to teaching children: I have and all ways will think that the children are the promise of a better future (tomorrow). Educating young minds is a blessing and rewarding opportunity.
Favorite book, as an adult, and why: I have so many favorites. I love the classics, Imitation of Life, The Color Purple, and To Kill a Mockingbird. I apologize for picking more than one. Actually my list could have went on forever. I love to read.
Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…): I love to add presentation to curriculum. I have had the students dress like presidents, build monuments. When teaching subjects such as math or writing, I like to put my students’ names in sentences, story problems, and songs.
