About Mrs. Lander...
Position: Kindergarten Teacher
Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindergarten. I am so excited to be working with your child at CTA Humphrey Elementary.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I have continued to take classes and attend training to further my knowledge for education in Early Childhood development.
My Educational Philosophy
My role as a teacher is to be able to provide enriching activities so that children are supported as they learn. I always look for ways to personalize learning and engage the child's imagination. I believe in multiple 'ways of knowing and doing' while promoting creative and higher-order thinking. I believe that my students deserve to be in an environment where they feel safe and can take risks in learning. My goal is for us to work as a community to achieve the success of each child's learning.
