8 years as a public school educator in grades K-3, with another 5 years in Montessori and Reggio Emilia preschools.
My blog and store are titled "Light a Candle" because my number one goal as a teacher is to spread both a love of learning and a spirit of kindness to all my students. I am a student-centered educator, and plan all of my lessons and units to meet student interests in order to increase motivation and desire to succeed. I strive to reach all students on their own levels as much as possible. I integrate subject areas, so students realize how all learning is connected and relevant to our everyday lives. I believe in cooperative learning, and hold all students to a high standard of achievement. Anything I choose to put in my store is something I have used in my own classroom with success.
Every time I receive a letter from a student or parent telling me how much they love my class!
