TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Credentialed MEPI 6-12 Montessori teacher; Secondary History teacher, published writer, experienced presenter

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that key to learning lies within each child. Children have great potential and that potential is unique rather than universal. This is why communicating with children as individuals, and recognizing and celebrating their individual spirits, is so important. The role of the teacher is to listen, observe, and model. All three of these things should be done respectfully. The teacher is also responsible for providing an environment that is peaceful, safe, caring, and stimulating. In such and environment students should be supported in following their interests as well as supported in taking risks and facing challenges.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Hello. I am a Montessori credentialed Elementary I and II teacher and traditionally trained and licensed secondary teacher in history and geography. I am also a certified naturalist and freelance writer; I occasionally write articles, textbook passages, and book reviews. I am a parent of three intelligent and kind young women. As an educator, I value sharing ideas and building community as well as promoting purposeful, quality approaches. Cosmic education and practical life are two of the most important tenets of Montessori philosophy. Cosmic education starts with the whole universe and works toward the parts, providing an understanding of the big-picture interconnectedness of everything. Practical life skills are basic, useful, and purposeful. They are the skills of self-sufficiency and intentional, rooted daily life.
