Hope Elementary School
Hometown:
Hope, Kansas

Room Number: 4

Class Description:
I have a small class of fun, creative students. They truly enjoy using the technology we do have and are always ready to try anything new.
Position:
Teacher
Needs:
At one time we had a digital camera for the classroom, but it has stopped working. With the economic troubles our room budgets have been frozen. I would really like to have one or two cameras for my class to use for projects.
My Philosophy:
Keep lessons current and innovative. If a child isn't learning one way, then try something different. Treat children with respect, and they will respect you in return.

Employment History:
I have taught 5th grade, 2nd grade, jr. high, and I am currently teaching 4 th grade. I have always taught at the same school, Hope Elementary.
Why Do I Teach?:
