Hello! My name is Allison and I am a teacher here in Lafayette. I have taught at the elementary level for three years. I am a firm believer that children need to have time to practice what they are learning so when I work with students, I also give them lots of time to practice a newly learned skill. It is also very important that kids learn to love learning. I help this happen by finding ways to involve what they love into lessons and teach in a way that best meet their needs. For example, if your child loves to move around then it does not make much sense for me to try to force him/her to sit still and learn. I would instead involve some type of movement into teaching the skill. I really do try to meet my students where they are and help them develop the skills necessary for them to reach their highest potential!
