I have been a teacher for the past nine years in the grade levels of third, kindergarten, and finally second. I have loved every minute of it! Everyday is an adventure and provides both my students and I with opportunities to collaborate, think critically, and continue being life-long learners.
My classroom revolves around a student-centered and collaboration supporting environment. Students will learn best not just when content is relative to them, but will have more meaningful educational experiences when they have the opportunity to learn through experimentation, collaboration, exploration and play.
