About Ms. Amie Stinemates...
Position: 6th Grade
Welcome Tarwater 6th Grade students and families!
I am excited to begin the new 2023-2024 school year! I look forward to meeting you at Meet Your Teacher on Monday, July 17th!!
My Education and Professional Background
I hold a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State University. I have spent the past four years teaching 7th/8th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies at a junior high school within CUSD. Before my time teaching 7th/8th grade, I spent several years substitute teaching at grade levels ranging from K-12.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy is that each student should be challenged within their range of ability. The classroom should be a safe and supportive community that fosters academic as well as social/emotional learning, creativity, and curiosity.
