Welcome to my classroom website! On this site you will find examples of the work my students have done in my classrooms, information on my education and classroom experience, samples of some of my unit plans and an insight as to who I am as a teacher. Explore!
For as long as I can remember, I have been a teacher.
My little sister, my cat, and several stuffed animals were witness to my first lessons. It is my objective to use my lifetime of preparation and passion to fulfill my calling.
It is my objective to help students learn.
As a teacher, I incorporate art, drama, music and more into my lessons to make learning interactive and fun. I establish relationships with my students centered around mutual respect in order to foster a safe learning environment where my students are comfortable and free to learn.
If you were to walk into my classroom at any given time, you would likely see my students working actively in small groups around the room. You would see me actively roving the classroom to monitor thier comprehension.
My classroom is not always a quiet room...but the noise is a calm and engaged noise. So much of learning is centered around social interactions and conversations amongst students that to ask them to work in silence would be taking away from thier education, not adding to it.
I use workshop teaching approaches and many aspects of differentiated instruction across the curriculum to ensure that each child is getting the instruction and intervention they need.
