I want to be a positive influence on my students. I enjoy being around my sixth graders and have learned a lot from them. I only hope they learn as much from me.

All of my students. I am pretty flexible in my teaching, but without the students there, it doesn't mean a whole lot.

I can't think of anywhere better than where I am now. I love sixth grade!
