Dear East Central Community and Parents,
I want to welcome you to my teacher page and introduce a little about myself and teaching philosophy. This is my second year working as a 2nd grade Dual-Language teacher here at John Glenn Elementary. Previously, I served as a Special Education teacher at the middle school and high school level. I strongly believe in a student-centered approach to education. My goal is to ignite the imagination of my students and to instill a love of learning through differentiation and project-based learning. My philosophy as an educator is to provide an opportunity for all students to acquire 21st century skills such as the ability to create, communicate, collaborate and use critical thinking. I am a strong advocate of technology in the classroom for student work creation. I believe that technology provides the opportunity for students to express themselves creatively and freely. Most importantly, I believe in creating a parent-teacher community to collaborate on motivating our students on a daily basis. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me anytime.
