I've been teaching for 6 years; grades 2,4,and 6. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Education Administration. I currently teach a 4th grade gifted cluster class and serve as Director of our school's Broadcasting Club.
I believe in offering students an engaging and rigorous learning experience. Learning should be fun but the focus should be on GROWTH. I believe in teaching students at their own levels and challenging each student to rise to their next level. I have high expectations and promote a pursuit of excellence. I strive to differentiate my instruction and provide opportunities that tap into a variety of learning styles. My philosophy has been shaped by Ron Clark, Harry Wong, Susan Winebrenner, Ian Byrd, Robert Marzano, and Sandra Kaplan.
