Always adapting! It depends from class to class (as each group is different), but I do believe in being "holistic," nurturing, and rigorous. I have high expectations and I believe in keeping parents informed.

I love being a teacher! Even on the most challenging days, I can normally go home with a smile and a happy heart. I loved volunteering with kids and working with them as a preschool teacher in my younger days, but then went on to the business world. I then found that I missed kids too much, so I went back and got my Masters in Education and began teaching right away. It was a great career change and I don't regret the choice for one moment!
