Lindsay: “I love to see my kids succeed. That is like the biggest blessing as a teacher is just working with them and seeing them grow getting that, ah light bulb that goes off whenever they get the right answer. Seeing them work so hard no matter if they are struggling; whatever they are doing. I love to see that they are capable of just answering the questions that I have. Or just being part of a community. They know we are a family and our classroom and that they take that very seriously. So we are loving and caring we are loving and caring. We are always listening to each other’s hopes and dreams in the future. We are trying to make it fun, interact-active, engaging. We are always differentiating according to what they need. It’s just a great atmosphere for all of the kids.”
