Hi! I love children and especially love to teach them. During my 22 year teaching career, I have taught many subjects and age groups ranging from Pre-K to College Level classes. I even had an opportunity to work as a School Administrator for several years.
I believe that all children can learn if given kindness, patience and by meeting individual needs and learning styles. I also think it is important to make learning fun. I do this through hands-on projects and with creative teaching methods. For example, in my 3rd grade classroom, the students constructed a real Native American Museum during our study of Native Americans. The Classroom Museum was full of artwork, artifacts and models of different houses in which Native Americans lived. My students also had the opportunity to dress as a United States President or First Lady on our 3rd Grade "Presidents Day." I also believe field trips help to reinforce classroom curriculum and enable learning to come alive.
I find education very rewarding and truly enjoy my job. I can find a special connection with any child and am often told by my students that I am their favorite teacher. I look forward to meeting more students and to continue in education for many years to come.
