I have been teaching for 9 years. I've taught Prek, Kindergarten, 1st and now 3rd grade!
I believe in nurturing our children. They need a lot of positive reinforcement and encouragement. I strive to build a school family. A place where children know they are always safe. Where their opinions are valued and their individual learning styles and thinking processes are not only embraced but encouraged.
