Master of Arts in Teaching
- Classroom community – I am passionate about creating a community type environment within our classroom where students feel comfortable taking risks and making mistakes as they grow and learn.
- Collaboration – I understand the importance of creating collaborative relationships with students, staff, and parents.
- Effective classroom management skills – I set the foundation with clear, consistent expectations. Students are included in the generation of classroom expectations. I use various strategies to ensure student engagement, quick transitions, and effective daily procedures.
- Meaningful instruction – I differentiate instruction for my students. I provide meaningful strategies which are relevant and helpful for each student to grow in knowledge and understanding.
