Student-centered, holistic, and open. I am inspired by Waldorf, RIE, and Sudbury methods, and try to create a classroom environment in which students can feel welcomed, appreciated, and empowered, whatever their strengths. I'm currently excited about restorative practices and am working on some unit plans for teachers to integrate them into their classrooms!
"Ms. Britt, you are the best teacher." "I passed my test because of you, teacher." "I miss your class, teacher." "You are my favorite teacher at this school." --some of my students
