This is my 5th year teaching. I taught kinder for 3 years and this will be my second year in 2nd grade.
I believe giving my students' ownership of the classroom and teaching them to manage their own behaviors. Teaching is a passion of mine. I believe children learn by doing and I believe firmly in creating a classroom community where students feel safe to be creative and take risks.
