Kindergarden - Room 5

WELCOME!  

Hello and welcome to kindergarten! I am so excited to have you all in my class! It is a big change for me having taught upper grade for the past three years, but I'm very excited to start this new adventure. 

 

Teaching Philosophy 

My personal goal for my classroom is to challenge students and watch them grow to their full potential. I believe that every child has the right to learn and get a quality education. As an educator it is my responsibility to individualized instruction and to aid children with different learning preferences. In my classroom, I want students to have the freedom that allows for expression and creativity. Students should be able to experiment with likes and dislikes and to realize their strengths and weaknesses. I feel it is beneficial for students to sometimes work for the answer rather than being told because it teaches them how to find information in a variety of ways. One particular learning strategy that I value is group work. In my classroom I hope to instill the value that group work brings to the classroom learning environment. From my personal experiences, I know teaching young minds is a task that cannot be taken lightly. It is full of challenges, frustrations, and responsibilities. However, it is a task that is also full of excitement, wonder, and joy. I strongly believe that all children are capable of learning, if they have the proper motivation and direction from all those involved in their education.
