About Sydney

My Teaching Philosophy:

EVERY CHILD CAN LEARN!!
I have taught third and fourth grade in Knox County Schools for 17 years. I have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I am "highly qualified" through The Tennessee Department of Education.

My teaching philosophy:
People have different learning styles. You can be a visual learner (seeing), auditory learner (hearing), and kinesthetic learner (hands-on).
As an experienced educator, my job is to find ways to incorporate multiple educational resources to make learning relevant, meaningful, and fun to inspire my students

17 years of teaching K-4

I taught at a TAP accredited school the last three years I was employed.

I was an after-school tutor for 6 years. I tutored English, Reading, Language Arts, and Math. Working individually and in small group is so rewarding educationally and socially for both the children and myself.

I love learning and helping others learn.
Growing up, I hated school!!
NOW: Looking into my students eyes, I see myself 35 years ago. Not understanding what the teacher is teaching.. Bored.. Looking off into space.. Passing notes..
I strive to change their attitude and mind-set about learning. Learning IS fun, at least it can be, with the right teacher..
