I have a passion for making a positive impact in the lives of children. I utilize my knowledge and experience to provide students a solid foundation for their future.

I teach my students that literacy and thinking are as important to them in life as breathing. Thinking is a lifetime strategy. I teach my students to be independent learners, problem solvers and deep thinkers. My desire is to fan this flame EARLY and keep it going! Each child deserves the opportunity to succeed.

Teaching is NOT a spectator sport!  It is about modeling, manipulating, exploring…sharing, building and this is only the beginning! Children are more apt to construct knowledge at a deeper level when engaged in hands-on experiences that stimulate the senses. The classroom comes alive with self-discovery when there is ACTIVE learning where both teacher and students are involved. My classroom is high energy. I want my students to fall in love with learning.
