The mission of Teaching Sunshine is to transform every classroom into a place where students and teachers thrive. Through our advice, products and services we help teachers create Total Positive Energy Zones in which their Family of Learners drives high-level achievement and a zest for lifelong learning.
We are strong believers in the power of positive collaboration. We welcome the input of other educators, parents, and all other education stakeholders! Our children are our most important resource. They will soon be driving society’s future. Let’s join together to ensure a bright future for all!
I am Michelle Stull, founder of Teaching Sunshine! I’m all about the power of positive collaboration and I highly welcome the thoughts and contributions from my many talented peers in the teaching profession.
I’ve been teaching elementary school for sixteen years, and am proud to say that I’m even more passionate about the profession now then I was when I felt the joy of accepting my first teaching position. I had the incredible good fortune of being raised by two of the most loving parents on the planet! Don’t get me wrong! Life was far from roses and sunshine, but they taught me by example that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. My mother taught me that no obstacle is too large if you have the will to move around it and my father taught me to believe in my dreams and work hard to achieve them. They have both moved to a place of peace, and I’m determined to use the many amazing lessons they imparted to contribute to society in a positive and enriching way.
I am an eternal optimist and with that, I welcome life’s challenges. Each challenge that we move beyond strengthens us and makes it easier to view future challenges as opportunities for growth.
Most importantly, I aim to empower others by helping them realize that in each interaction and in each situation, they have the ability to choose a positive or a negative viewpoint.
In my opinion, it is a terrible waste when students choose to focus on each other’s negative characteristics. None of us is perfect, and few of us come close. I’m surely not perfect. The beauty is that students are so easily taught to focus on each other’s positive characteristics.
When the classroom becomes a Total Positive Energy Zone, learning becomes limitless!!!
I’m looking super forward to hearing from you!! Please get in touch and let’s work together to create ripples of change that become waves of learning, and create a better tomorrow for us all!!
