I graduated this May and took on a long term substitution right after I finished student teacher. I will be a first grade teacher next year in the elementary school I attended as a child. I am very excited to start my career and share things that I have learned over my college career!
I believe that every student can learn. I love using inquiry based lessons, PBLs, and hands on activities to keep students engaged and learning. Students want to learn and have a natural curiosity about the world around them. It is my job to help guide them to discover new things and give them a safe, loving environment to do this in. I believe in a student centered classroom and like using Kagan cooperative learning strategies. Students can learn a lot from one another and I love watching them interact and discover something new together. I have a true passion for teaching and I could not imagine doing anything else with my life!
I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success and graduated Cum Laude as well.
I went to a community college my senior year of high school and had a year of college completed before graduating. Then, I finished up my associates degree and transferred to a University to get my degree in elementary education. Throughout my college career I worked in the school system substituting and worked at two different daycare as a three year old and Pre K teacher. This also helped me to learn more about teaching prior to graduating.
I LOVE teaching and Dr. Seuss! I am looking forward to putting my classroom together and hope my students will truly enjoy it. I have created many resources to help enhance the class and help the students learn as well. I am excited to share them with you and hope that they will help your students as well.
