TEACHING EXPERIENCE

You’re a brand new teacher, ready and eager to inspire your students. Then comes the busy work. The “mentorship” that piles on the paperwork. The “I’m just trying to stay afloat this year and I want to keep growing as an educator but OH-MY-GOSH-how-do-I-keep-up-with-all-these-meetings-and-worksheets?” mentorship. Here’s where I come in. Cue the sigh of relief! I’m Lorraine, and I’m here to be your personal mentor teacher, on the go, without the nonsense! I’m someone who is passionate about teaching and is on a mission to help other educators feel confident as they continue developing their craft.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Helpful is my heart… It’s been clear since the start of my career that I have a unique way of teaching - a way that inspires students to keep learning, but just as importantly inspires the teacher down the hall to ask, “Hey, how did you teach that?” or “Hey, what was that resource you mentioned?” Lifelong learning is my passion - whether for myself, my students, or my fellow educators. There is always something to reflect on, new research in best practices, or something inspiring happening in the changes of the world. It is our duty as educators to never stop learning - never stop blooming - so we can continually teach to the best of our abilities. Here at Apple Blossom Teachers, I am here to help YOU grow.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching is my passion, whether that's in the classroom to elementary students, at a conference for teachers, or on my new podcast for teachers! I also enjoy spending time with family (including my husband Dee, son D.V., and Luna the Lab!) cooking, reading, relaxing with friends and family, and painting. I am so grateful to be doing what I love, and I can't wait to see what the future holds!
