This is currently my third year teaching in an urban school district. My first year I was a fifth grade teacher and am now in Kindergarten for my second year. Prior to receiving my certification, I had several years experience working in child care centers with children aged 3- school age. Also, while attending college I worked for a progressive school which gave me experience with a variety of teaching and learning styles.
I believe that the first thing a teacher needs to do is form a relationship with each and every student. If a relationship is formed then the students are in a place to learn and the teacher can teach to the best of his/her ability. I also believe in the quote "Tell me and I'll forget; Show me and I may remember; Involve me and I'll understand," and I strive to teach by this every day.
I graduated from University of Delaware where I majored in Elementary Teacher Education. I am certified to teach both elementary and special education. I am also taking classes to receive my Masters in ESL.
I love creating products for my classroom and I can't wait to share them with other teachers!
