Mr Holman started as my mentor teacher and became my good friend. We have worked together as 7th grade world history teachers for eight years. We have traveled the country physically and virtually to share our students' work with teachers and administrators. Every time we spoke at a conference or lead professional development, people were always amazed with the creativity and passion of our students' work.
On a much personal note; I would like to thank the students of CMS and BMS. Over the past several years I have had the unique honor of helping to teach students in two districts. Our students have left digital footprints worth following. THEIR legacy has effected how students and teachers teach and learn across the planet. The work of several hundred seventh graders has helped bring real change to education. It is very humbling to be able to say I was apart of that change.
While my new career means a new direction in my life, it does not mean my passion for teaching is diminishing. I will continue to work with the students that I am leaving behind and Mr. Holman. My goal is that I can help change teaching and learning for even more students and teachers. Again, thank you to everyone who has believed in me!
