My Teaching Philosophy
- Grades: 3–5
Although teaching is not an easy job, I feel lucky that there is nothing I would rather do. Making learning both engaging and purposeful for my students is my ultimate goal.
In my classroom, reading, writing, and math workshops are at the heart of the learning that takes place every day. I also strive to weave technology into my curriculum and work hard to make my lessons applicable to the real world. Whether we are “traveling” around the United States on our "region tour" or examining economic principles through our classroom economy, I want to make learning in my classroom purposeful and authentic.
I see education as the main tool that we have to prepare children for their futures. Since it’s our students who will become the future leaders and citizens of this world, I feel nothing is more important than a quality education. Teachers have a unique and daunting responsibility to shape the future through their students. Because of this responsibility, I try to take each opportunity I can to shape the world around me for the better and to instill the same desire within the children I teach.
