This is my fourth year of teaching.
As a first grade teacher, I create a safe and encouraging learning environment for students to build confidence in academics, social skills, and positive behavior. I implement whole group lessons but also am a strong supporter of collaborative learning where students are engaged and learning from each other. I believe all students can learn, and it is my job to instill a love for learning. It is my dream that this love for learning will be a part of my students for the rest of their lives.
