TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This will be my seventh year teaching 2nd grade. I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember and 2nd grade has always been my favorite grade. There is something magical that happens at this age and I love being a part of that magic.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The idea of helping students find themselves through the joy of learning is something that I am truly passionate about. I translate this enthusiasm into creative lessons that are meaningful and engaging to my students. Each child brings something unique and special to the classroom, and I draw on these strengths in my teaching. I believe in student-centered teaching filled with cooperative learning and hands-on experiences. Building classroom community is extremely important to me and I hope that my students will become educational risk takers who support one another and genuinely enjoy learning. When students view learning as a life long adventure, there is no limit to what they can achieve! I also believe strongly in the home-school connection and the vital role parents (and families) play in learning.
