Other Information

Currently teaches:

  • Fifth grade

I’ve found that I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.

I connect my students’ learning to the outside world to help develop self-confident, motivated learners. I encourage students to be investigators and detectives and discover new ideas for themselves. They work together and independently to dig deeper and problem solve. I cultivate an environment where students respect and listen to each other, just as I respect and listen to them.
