Ms. Tonya Hopkins
I am originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. I have one child, a son. I have worked in education on and off since 2008. I have worked as a Second Grade Teacher in Shreveport. I have worked with all Grades, Subjects, Special Education, Behavior Classrooms. Becoming a Teacher has always been a passion. Sometimes we drift away from the path we are supposed to take, but then somehow find our way back to our Destiny/Calling. I am currently certified to teach Early Childhood - 6th; Special Education - Early Childhood-12th; and Health - Early Childhood -12th. I am seeking to become a School Counselor.
I believe the children are our future and it is up to us to teach them well and let them lead the way. Although I possess other degrees, I chose to continue on the path of Teeaching because I believe it is very important to foster a positive self-concept in my students, as this is the central goal focus in teaching. We as Teachers should have high expectations for all students and push all students towards excellence.
One of my favorite quotes is by Audrey Hepburn - "Nothing is Im'possible; the word itself says 'I'm Possible'!"
EACH ONE, TEACH ONE, REACH ONE!!!
