Christmas

Hello welcome to my classroom,
I have been teaching for the last four years. I am certified in Special Education, Bilingual education as well as EC-8.

My teaching philosophy

I believe that respectful, caring bonds with children and their families are the vital foundation for a wonderful kindergarten experience. As a teacher of the young, I share with parents the responsibility for teaching their child.

I believe that each child has unique strengths, varied prior language learning experiences, and preferred learning styles. My instruction must be differentiated to provide enough challenge and enough support for all children to build on success and develop positive attitudes about learning.

I believe that emotional engagement is the key to all powerful learning. That is why I bring love, laughter, passion, and meaningful project work into my kindergarten. I always look for ways to personalize learning and engage the child’s imagination.
