I've been an early childhood educator for over a decade. I've taught pre-K, first, third, and fourth grades. I love sharing ideas with my peers and putting new twists on old ones. Making learning fun, interactive , and engaging is a goal I set for myself every single day. Student engagement is so very important in their success.
I believe in teaching the standard and raising the bar for all the students in my classroom. I pull from a variety of resources, curriculums, and methods to meet the needs of all my students. Everyone can learn, everyone can succeed. Not every method or strategy works for every student. I believe children each learn in different ways and I strive to offer learning choices in my classroom. "Hands-on, Minds-on" is one philosophy I believe in. I believe in helping my students dig deeper into their thought process and become better critical thinkers. I teach my students mistakes are learning tools and we should embrace them. I teach my student to lift each other up and be supportive.
The smiles and hugs of my students on a daily basis! :) BES Teacher of the Year 2014-2015
