TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After subbing for two years in my hometown in upstate New York, I took a job as an Infant Teacher in a childcare center. I also taught a phonics program there. From there, I moved to Michigan to pursue professional opportunities. I now work as a full-day kindergarten teacher here. I love going to work to see those little smiling faces! This is my second year teaching and I love it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style encompasses a wide range of methods and strategies. I like to have as much hands-on, in-depth participation from the students as possible. I employ a constructivist style with the goal leaning toward critical. Getting my students to think for themselves and think critically about the world around them is of high importance.
