I just finished my 21st year in the classroom and I'm learned every day! I love to help my students figure out who they are, who they want to be, and how to get there.
Empowering students to be self-thinkers requires a safe environment, the illusion of student control, and helping children learn through mistakes.
I've received multiple recognitions and awards but my favorites are the notes, letters, smiles, and hugs from my students, both present and past.
