I have taught 1st grade and kindergarten. I have also spent a great deal of time going to professional development such as Great Expectations and Dr. Jean. My goal is to be able to positively impact the lives of children so that they are productive in their futures and become life long learners.
Establishing a climate of mutual respect will create a caring environment in the classroom. Students have the right to learn in an environment that is safe; from verbal and/or physical confrontations and an environment that is conducive for the students to be “risk-takers” – able to be comfortable enough to take a risk at asking or answering a question, participating in class discussions, and free to learn at their own level.
I am one of the lead teachers for the school I work in.
I graduated from Southern Nazarene University in the spring of 2011 with a BS in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I began teaching as a kindergarten teacher and then moved to a new school to enjoy first grade.
I spend a great deal of my spare time trying to figure out how to help fund new projects at my school and making new things for my classroom. I really enjoy being able to look around my class and know that I created a lot of the things in it. It makes it feel like a second home.
