GRADES 3rd and 4th Homeroom
Our classroom philosophy for learning is that each child is unique and learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work with them to maximize it. I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well as of my students. My goal is to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and feel challenged. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in school to real-life situations.

I was named the 2018 State of Michigan Agricultural Science Teacher of the Year. I am a NASA Globe teacher. I am a certified Catechist and have completed the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1. I have been a guest lecturer at Eastern Michigan University in the Reading Masters Program, am a Teacher Trainer for Differentiated Instruction, and have served on the State of Michigan Test for Teacher Certification Social Studies Review Committee and I currently serve as the STEM Committee Chair for YMCA Camps Outdoor Education Programs for Southeast Michigan and Northern Ohio. My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique and learns in a different way. I believe my job as a teacher is to help children discover his or her individuality and work with them to maximize it. I love all of the subjects that I teach, but it is my goal to instill a passion for reading, writing, problem solving, and project-based learning across the curriculum in all of my students as well as to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and feeling challenged. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in school to real-life situations.
