Class Dojo Page:  Ms. Higdon's Class 

Planning:  10:50-11:40

My name is Ms. Higdon and I am a fourth grade teacher at Spencer County Elementary.  This is my first year of having my own classroom.  It is a great honor to be apart of this adventure.  I have been a substitute teacher in Spencer County and have been an instructional assistant in the special education and kindergarten classroom.  I always look forward to working with students to see them learn and grow, as if they were sponges. 
       

I went to Western Kentucky University.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I am currently getting my Master’s Degree in Learning Behavior Disorders (LBD) online through Western Kentucky University.  My goal is to be a guide and a mentor for students to learn best.  I believe in encouraging and challenging students to recognize leadership qualities and reaching his or her full potential as a learner.  
 

I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky.  I have no siblings, but I do have a dog.  His name is Max.  I enjoyed going to Iroquois Park and participating in imaginative play when I was little.  I embrace the the use and acknowledgment of student creativity in the classroom.  It’s amazing how we can express ourselves in many ways. 
 

In January 2018, I got engaged to my fiancé, Mr. Jon.  He proposed in front of the state capitol in Frankfort, Kentucky.  He is in the Air National Guard and works on C-130 airplanes.  Mr. Jon and I are going to get married this summer at the Parklands.  We are super excited!  
 

As a teacher, I believe all individual students can contribute diverse qualities to form a unique classroom.  This classroom could therefore be seen as a “Community of Learners.”  Each contributing to the learning process in the classroom and beyond.
