I am a ten year veteran teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's Degree in ESL Education. I have many years of experience working in child care settings as a toddler and Pre-K teacher. I have worked for nine years in the public school setting as a Pre-K teacher and Kindergarten teacher.
I worked in an urban school, and now currently in an urban preschool, and feel that I am a caring and supportive yet firm teacher. I have high expectations of myself and of my students. I encourage my students to be independent and help to guide them as they journey through this new academic world that they are just beginning to discover. I believe in hands-on, inquiry based teaching. I believe in the use of formative assessments to drive my instruction. I believe that all students have the ability to learn and succeed, when they are provided with the proper support, regardless of their background.
I was a part of my school's leadership team. I have worked as a cooperating teacher for several student teachers.
