Dear Parents,

  • As a teacher and mom, I believe that teaching and learning successfully happen with planned real-life connections and hands-on experiential activities.  Thus, knowledge becomes meaningful and long-lasting.  We all learn best when we feel confident and safe – safe to err and safe to experiment. My modeling in and out of the classroom is centered on positive reinforcement and praise.  I encourage and challenge my students to be curious, as foundation for life-long learning.  I want them to know that it’s OK to make mistakes as a way to forward their learning.  Socially, my students learn to find great traits in every peer in their classroom, which creates a tightly-knit family-like community.

I am excited to be your child’s teacher and your partner in his/her educational journey!
