Eaton Park Elementary

 I choose to teach because it allows me to make a difference in a child's life.  I get to make a positive impact in the life of a child, give them the gift of an education, and prepare them for tomorrow.  I provide all my students with opportunities and incentives to develop intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally, and morally. I believe that loving the children I have the opportunity to teach is the most important component I must have in order to educate them. Each year my students prove my heart can hold more love than I could imagine.  Each year my students teach me immeasurable lessons as a teacher, a mother, and a person. Teaching is not just a chosen career for me, it's my passion.
