Hello! This is my 13th year teaching in cluster one at Seven Oaks Elementary. In Cluster 1, I get the privilege of meeting our students in first grade and following them through second grade. It is a great experience to stay with the same students and parents for two years. I received my Bachelors in Liberal Arts from The Evergreen State College and then went on to achieve my Masters in Elementary Education from City University. I have also completed my Professional Certification.
Here are just some of my educational beliefs that I bring to the classroom everyday.
1. High, realistic expectations show students you belive in them.
2. ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN. They might just need different approaches, more repetition, and alternative ways to demonstrate their learning.
3. Children need opportunities to move, talk and have fun while learning.
4. Building relationships with parents supports student growth.
