I received my AAS in Early Childhood from SFCC in 2002. I have worked in Early Childhood Education for 20 years, the last 17 here at North Wall Schools with the Infant, Toddler, and Preschool classes. I was blessed to attend Whitworth University starting in the fall of 2017, and I graduated in May 2020 with my BA in Elementary Education after completing my student teaching at Shiloh Hills Elementary.
I believe in showing respect, dignity and appreciation for the uniqueness of each student. I respect the family and culture with which each child is blessed. I will provide engaging activities that follow the student’s curiosity and expand the student’s mind using discovery-based and problem-solving approaches to the curriculum. I will create and maintain a safe and healthy environment that fosters the student’s academic, social, and spiritual growth.
Goals for the Class
· To show all students that they are loved and respected, and that their thoughts are important in our classroom community.
· To provide students with the opportunity to problem solve through their learning.
· To foster a community where students work collaboratively.
· To create a learning environment that engages each student’s mind and soul
