Philosophy- Children are motivated to learn when they have opportunities to make choices in an environment that is enriching and stimulating. When children are encouraged to interact with their peers and adults in positive ways, they feel safe to explore their surroundings.
As a teacher, I seek to guide children from needing assistance with a task to accomplishing a task independently by providing experiences that are challenging yet attainable for every child.
Personal- I am a mother of a 12-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, cooking, listening to music and reading!
Role Model- Saint Theresa of Calcutta, a.ka. Mother Theresa. What an inspiration!
