  • Teaching Philosophy
    • My goal as a teacher is to help students become critical thinkers. I want my students to learn about the physical and natural world around them by asking questions, finding answers and sharing what they have learned. I am passionate about creating curriculum that relates to students' experiences, interests and backgrounds and that allow students to ask questions and find answers through meaningful activities.  I will get to know my students and their families so that I can make what we are learning relevant by using real-world examples, visuals and scenarios. By focusing on positive behavior expectations, we create a community that maximizes the time that we spend together in the classroom.  Through positive feedback, high expectations and support I believe that all students are able to succeed.
