TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I moved to North Carolina in 1998 to teach Kindergarten and loved it for 15 years. I have recently "graduated" and have been teaching first grade for a year and a half now. I didn't think I could love it more than K, but I do!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My beliefs and feelings about teaching are demonstrated in my personal teaching style. They are central to how I teach. I am structured in schedule, yet flexible in differentiating for a child’s needs. I am a comedian when being silly with jokes and during songs, yet firm when it comes to discipline and learning expectations. I teach the state curriculum, yet I allow for exploration when my students find interest in other areas. My teaching style is one that ultimately takes into account the best interests of each student as well as those of my class as a whole. The one constant of my style is the desire to see each and every child succeed, with a smile.
