Over the last 15 years, I have taught 2nd, 4th, and 6th grades.
I believe in instilling a passion for lifetime learning into my students. One way I introduce this passion is by being a model lifetime learner for my students. We live in an ever-changing world. Teacher-student interaction centers on assisting students in their personal journey through learning. This philosophy goes hand-in-hand with the teacher as facilitator approach to teaching. It also embraces the idea that each student is an individual with his or her own special needs.
