Why she chose teaching:
"I truly never considered another profession once I realized I had a love of teaching," explained Mrs. Shake. "Teaching people how to do things was always a passion of mine. I felt I had a knack of breaking down problems into parts and leading people to answers instead of just telling them how to solve it. I love to see my students persevere and find answers to difficult questions."
What she enjoys most about teaching:
"I like to think that I am making a difference, not only in their education but in their life," she said. "I try to hold kids accountable for everything they do. I have high expectations of my students. I want them to work hard and be successful...to know that I am helping shape some of our future is exciting and humbling."
Mrs. Shake's favorite teaching moment:
"I think it is the day to day progress that my students make," explained Mrs. Shake. "I get so much joy when a student has worked on a math problem for a while, I nudge them with a hint, and then they figure it out. The pride of accomplishment in their eyes overwhelms me with happiness." She added, "I think my favorite moments are those little moments."
