Hello! My name is Ris :)

Thank you for visiting my website! My vision is to create a social community for my students so that they can connect and communicate outside the classroom. 
I am here to encourage, motivate, and give of myself. 

I love working with kids because they bring color and spontaneity to life. I love their questions, wit, and zeal. No doubt that, whichever class we have together, we will BOTH be having a great time :)
