As a teacher, I love to keep the students engaged and excited about what they are learning. I try to make each lesson one that I am excited about teaching, and one that if I were a student in my class, would be enthusiastic about learning. I try to keep a hands-on approach to the lessons that I create, while integrating technology as well as crafty ideas to keep the students excited. Teacher of the Year 2015-2016
