Class Information:

Class Description:
There are 12 girls and 11 boys in our class this year. We are a classroom of mixed-ability students. There are five students in my class that receive special services. We are a low-income school with a diverse population of students and families.
Position:
Kindergarten Teacher
My Philosophy:
I believe that every child deserves the right to be educated and to learn to their full potential. I am a big believer of differentiated instruction and work all the time on developing the teaching skills necessary to have a differentiated classroom. I am a promoter of critical thinking amongst my students and I have high expectations of every kiddo that I teach.
Personal Information:
About Me:
This is my second year teaching kindergarten in the Neenah Joint School District and I absolutely love what I do. I would love for our classroom to be more technologically advanced so that I can better prepare my students for their future educations and careers.
College and Degrees:
I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2008 with a degree in elementary education [pk-6] and a minor in elementary science. I plan to attend UWO in the fall of 2010 to start working towards my master's degree in curriculum and instruction [pk-3].
Activities:
I enjoy teaching and all the things that go along with it. I also am an avid reader, I enjoy doing word puzzles, spending time with my family and friends, learning about the history of Oshkosh, cooking, and playing softball.
Favorite Quotes:
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ~e.e. cummings
Employment History:
This is my second year of employment by the Neenah Joint School District.
Why Do I Teach?:
I teach kindergarten because I want every student that passes through my classroom to have a positive first experience with education. If a child has a positive experience with kindergarten they are more likely to succeed in education in their later school years. Another reason I teach is because I get so much joy out of watching children learn and discover things on their own. I love that kindergartners are so refreshingly honest and truthful and their zest for life and learning helps me to realize what is important in my own life.
