TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In addition to teaching kindergarten, first, and third grade, I've also had 5-years experience outside the classroom working for non-profits serving schools across the city of Chicago. I've been so lucky to learn from schools and teachers across the city and try to bring the best practices back where my heart is, in the classroom working directly with students. Hoping this store helps me share what I learned with teachers all over!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in giving students the tools, mindset, and agency to take control of their own learning and continuously set goals to grow. I hope my students will be lifelong learners so have tried to create resources to help them build the skills to manage their own own learning for the rest of their lives! Starting from the learning outcomes and working backwards, I try to align everything to the goals I hope my students will achieve and give them room to grow past them with challenges.
