Welcome to Kindergarten! I am elated to be joining the Kindergarten team here at KGA! I am looking forward to working with you this year. Kindergarten is an incredible time of learning and growth. I look forward to being a part of building the foundation of learning and making memories that will last a lifetime. We are going to have an amazing year!
My Education and Professional Background
I can ALMOST say that I have been teaching longer than I haven't! I graduated from Brigham Young University with degrees in both Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I began my career teaching first grade for two years in Utah. Life then took me to Nebraska where I taught Kindergarten for 5 years. I have had the opportunity to write and publish curriculum for Empower Educational Consulting and have trained teachers as a trainer for Houghton Mifflin/Harcourt. I have taught at New Vistas. I have been teaching Pre-K in CUSD for the past 5 years and have been at Knox for the last 3. I am currently finishing my gifted endorsement.
My Educational Philosophy
My philosophy can be summed up in one sentence: Respect begets respect. As a teacher it is my job to provide an environment that will respectfully encourage and guide children in a way that helps them reach their full potential. Appropriate learning tools and activities are a must. Knowing each student is also of utmost importance in the process of directing learning and inspiring curiosity.
