TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught children for 17 amazing years: 7 years as a middle school Language Arts teacher and 10 years as a self-contained fifth grade teacher. I currently teach fifth grade and mentor teachers at fellow schools.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Everyday in the classroom I am reminded that I teach children first and subjects second. To me that means that I need to make a personal connection with each student. Once students realize that the teacher truly cares about them, then they are more trusting and willing to work hard at learning what I am teaching them. I enjoy blending the best aspects of traditional learning with hands-on learning e.g. computers, mobile devices, rockets, painting, gardening, games, dramatic skits, music, courtroom scenes, debates, speeches, producing music videos, marble rollercoasters, poetry booklets, and writing children's books. I believe these creative approaches encourage students to become curious, lifelong learners. I prioritize character education in my room. It is vitally important that it is not only what a student knows, but also who a student is and becomes. I want students leaving my classroom to be good citizens by being caring, responsible, organized, compassionate, and thoughtful.
