Welcome to room 5, it is the place to "BEE"! This website is meant to keep you informed about your child's school experience. Kindergarten is a great year filled with lots of wonderful memories and growth. Use this website as a tool to help you stay involved and informed about what is going on in your child's world. I look forward to a great year with you and your growing Husky!
My Education and Professional Background
I have taught kindergarten at Hartford Sylvia Encinas since 2009. In 2016, I moved up with my class and taught first grade, but moved back to teach kindergarten in 2017. I also taught second grade for four years back in my home state of Michigan. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Wayne State University. I also hold an Early Childhood Endorsement and a Structured English Immersion Endorsement. I have had additional training in: Dibels, Thinking Maps and Fundations.
My Educational Philosophy
My approach to teaching can be summed up in one word...POSITIVE! Children learn best through positive experiences and should be encouraged to take risk in the learning environment. I believe that all children can learn and I encourage them to reach beyond their goals. Classroom instruction should be individualized so that each child's learning needs are met. It is my job as an educator to discover how each child learns, and to provide them with the tools necessary to apply new learning.
