Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to continue the educational process and work to instill values such as compassion, fairness, and commitment to community in our gems. For the past three nine weeks, we have worked hard to not only learn subjects such as reading, math, science, and social studies, but to learn how to be kind, respectful, productive citizens in our society. In my eight years of teaching, I have grown to realize that learning has to be holistic and meet the needs of all students. Every student can learn and each student's words and feeling are valued in our classroom. Our classroom is a safe learning environment and students are encouraged to take risk because only through trying, and yes, sometimes failing, does true understanding happen. Academic, social, and emotional learning must take place in the classroom in order for students to be well-rounded and prepared for success in a society that demands teamwork and understanding. I will continue to focus on holistic learning as we progress throughout the rest of this school year whether in or out of the classroom. I can not do this alone but with your parental assistance, we will ensure that our students continue to grow and enhance their love for learning.
