I am a retired Marine who has worked as both a Teacher Assistant in Special Education, as well as a second grade, fith grade, and a K-5 Physical Education teacher. These varied assignments have given me experiences that I have been able to convert into learning experiences in the classroom.
By making connections with our students,we can create warm, safe and inviting learning environments. These classrooms can operate with a code of conduct, procedures and routines and still be creative spaces where every student feels valued. I believe that the heart of any good instruction is planning our lessons to make them effective yet fun!
