About Ms. Pledger
My approach to curriculum design emphasizes a constructivist pedagogy aligned with CCSS; consistent feedback to guide students' inquiry, interests, and growth areas; collaborative opportunities to promote effective reciprocal teaching; and authentic learning experiences that hone critical 21st-century skills: creativity, oral and written communication, and critical thinking. I seek to train my students to take ownership of their learning by becoming intellectually curious and motivated leaders beyond the classroom walls.
I am also a burgeoning blended learning advocate! Through the use of G Suite for Education and other virtual resources, I seek to harness the vast potential of eLearning tools and technology to enhance student engagement and performance.
Ultimately, it is not only my great pleasure but also my promise to do everything within my power help each student reach their fullest potential!
When I'm not wearing my teaching cap, I love spending time with my family, hiking, reading, and eating! Below are pictures of my husband, Casey, and now one-and-a-half-year-old son, Theo. Furthermore, we are expecting a new addition to the family this December!
