I am currently teaching 5th grade. I previously taught 2nd grade for 2 years.
I want to teach in a way that inspires my students to be life long learners. To do this I will create a positive classroom environment. I set clear expectations that allow students to learn and develop in the beginning of the school year. I always allow students to interact and state their opinions. I include students in decision making and give them choices. I will teach students that our classroom is a safe fun place away from home.

I love learning as much as I do teaching. It is a daily goal of mine to reflect and learn from my mistakes, learn from my children and learn from my successes. I am always striving to take my teaching to the next level and mold my ideas to fit the needs of my students.
