“I want the students in my classroom to read and write daily. My hope is that they will improve their writing, vocabulary, and grammar skills and become lifelong readers and writers. I also hope that they will develop a passion for knowing the history of America as well as the lessons we learned, or should have learned, from events in US history. It is also important for students to see how that same history of America is relevant to them in their daily lives. Most importantly, I look forward to sharing the Faith with my students.”
