TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach third and fourth grade gifted kiddos, and I enjoy every second of it! Over the past eleven years, I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with my job! I am extremely passionate about teaching and creating, and I enjoy being able to share that passion with others!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that teaching stretches far beyond the content areas. First and foremost, I work on establishing strong relationships with my students based on trust, mutual respect, and empathy. I realize that I am educating little people, and that even little people have problems that occasionally distract them from learning. I embrace this, and strive to meet their emotional and academic needs while at school. Sometimes we all need a pat on the back or a supportive smile to get us through the day. Beyond that, I take a child-centered approach to learning. I feel that if I say or do too much I am, in fact, inhibiting the students’ learning. My instruction is very much interactive, hands-on, authentic, and tailored to meet each individual student's needs as much as possible. I want the students to think intently and critically to find solutions, reflect on their learning, and gain independence. My role is to facilitate this learning and encourage them along the way. I provide the opportunities and then support as they complete assignments to ensure that every child feels a level of success and confidence in my classroom.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Masters in Literacy Curriculum and Instruction, a reading endorsement, and a gifted endorsement. I also work as an adjunct professor at a local university, and I love it! *Ultimate Goal: I would like obtain my Doctorate and perhaps work as a professor or Literacy Coach.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am an exceptionally lucky person who genuinely enjoys her job, and I consider teaching my greatest hobby. Third grade captured my heart, and now fourth grade is captivating me just as much! I also enjoy drawing, reading, singing, shopping and dancing. I thrive on being able to think creatively and think outside of the box. I love running! It is a great stress reliever! I also love traveling, spending time with my husband {of course}, my dogs Loralei and Stella, family and friends, and I love experiencing new things. I've recently delved into the world of workshops, and I am HOOKED! :)
