Introducing Me


My name is Hayden, and I am currently studying to become a special education elementary teacher. I created Shining Bright Blog to have a platform to create tools for new teachers and share the positive side of being a teacher in this tough time being in the education field. I often see negative things about the education field on my social medias and I want to show other young educators my excitement and love for education. Educate, Advocate, and Celebrate are three words that mean a lot to me so I wanted to carry them into this blog. I believe it is extremely important to educate, advocate, and celebrate children with special needs and I want to share that with the world. I hope you choose to stick around and follow my journey as I study to become a teacher and a young advocate for children with special needs.
