I have been teaching in an elementary setting for the past 14 years. I have had the opportunity to loop with my 3rd and 4th grade students for the past 10 years.
I believe every child can learn and it is my job to make sure that happens. I run a tight ship in my classroom, but we also have fun! I work to create a "classroom family" where all feel comfortable to learn, try new things, make mistakes, participate, and share their feelings. I do a lot of small group learning. We are a Daily 5 and CAFE structured classroom for literacy and a Daily 5 math classroom as well. This year we are working to also be a STEM classroom.
