“I love working with military dependents – they have a wealth of experiences to draw from. Their excitement and enthusiasm are infectious. I also appreciate the outstandingly positive culture at Partridge Elementary.
I truly love my job and can’t imagine doing anything else.”
“My favorite part of teaching is building those relationships with students, getting to know their minds and their hearts.
Sharing jokes and stories with them and knowing that they trust me to guide them in their learning is one of the most humbling and rewarding experiences.”
“My most earnest desire is to inspire the hearts and minds of my students to achieve their greatest potential and life’s purpose. This has been my eighth year of teaching 5th grade mathematics, science and English language arts.
My love of teaching has not wavered. I love what I do.
I am truly blessed to be surrounded by angels in my classroom every day.”
“What I love most about teaching is watching my students grow academically from the beginning to the end of the school year.
I love seeing light bulbs go off.”
