TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught all grades K-3 at least once, but I am now entering my 4th year in teaching Kindergarten. The 2014-2015 year will be my 8th year which makes me feel a wee bit old:)

MY TEACHING STYLE

This is hard to describe because I feel like I tweak my teaching style each year depending on my kiddos. I do have a few common beliefs when it comes to teaching. 1. Creating a calm and caring community is vital. (This is one of those things that I'm successful at some years and other years not so much). 2. Rigor, rigor, rigor! I'm not your grandma's Kindergarten teacher. Kids are far more capable than we expect them to be. If we set the expectations high, they will more often than not surprise us. 3. I don't have a Pre-K or Kindergarten voice. You won't ever hear me say "Now, Kindergarten friends..." I use the same tone with everyone regardless of age. Except babies. My voice always seems to get higher when I'm around them:) 4. I want students to leave my class every day knowing that I love them and that they are smart. 5. I'm passionate about data and my kids are passionate too. Kids get so excited when they see they've made progress.
