Robinson, Tracy
Third Grade Math Teacher
My students call me Mrs. Tracy. I have been teaching since 2014. I have taught both third and fourth grade. Educators undoubtedly have the ability to do much good, to actually change the lives of our students. My favorite thing about teaching is this: We have the ability to cultivate a desire to learn in our students, to encourage them to fulfill their potential. I count my blessings daily and hope to always do right by them. My elementary philosophers make me smarter on a daily basis; and there is no greater feeling than creating a spark for the desire to learn in them. Out of all the professions in the world, teaching is what I was born to do.
