My person philosophy in education has always been founded on one big idea that made a huge impact on me early in my career. It is this: In order for me to call myself a teacher, someone must be learning. In other words, my students’ ability to learn in my classroom empower me to call myself their teacher. That’s a pretty powerful idea and a very tall order. I am blessed that I get to work in such an amazing field with other amazing people who love what they do and do what they do out of love.
I am assigned to teach three subject areas this year: Pre-Ap Math for 6th Grade; Journalism; and Teen Leadership. This will be my 8th year teaching 6th Grade Math- a subject and age I really enjoy working with. This will be my fourth year teaching Journalism- another area I enjoy that could have easily been my job in ‘another life’ as some say. I will be teaching Teen Leadership professionally for the first time this year.
Hopefully this gives you a small insight into me. I look forward to being your child’s teacher this coming year and hope that you feel free to participate in our year-long journey. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Let’s have a fantastic year!
