My Educational Philosophy:
Teaching in the 21st Century requires teachers to be flexible and versatile in providing students with a range of tools to support their learning. Today’s classrooms are not just about the learning that occurs within the classroom, but also when teachers flatten the walls and connect students learning to wider communities, giving student learning an authentic purpose and meaning. The learning environment should be built around positive relationships where each child feels safe, valued and respected. Teaching enables me to continue to build upon my knowledge and skills everyday. It creates memories for both my students and myself that last a lifetime.
Hobbies and Interests:
