I am currently preparing for my third year of teaching in 5th grade. This age group brings so much joy to days in the classroom. I teach writing and science. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Louisville. I am working on my Master's Degree in School Counseling now and hope to be finished my next fall.
The most important thing about teaching to me is developing relationships with my students. I want each child who walks into my classroom to know that they are cared for and that their teacher is someone they can trust. Building these positive relationships with students opens the door to active learning. I believe it is my job to facilitate the learning as students take control. I do my best to teach my students responsibility and self-sufficiency. Many fifth graders come to my class with a negative stigma about writing. My job is to create a love of writing in them before they walk out of my room at the end of the year.
