JANUARY 2023 TEACHER OF THE MONTH
Thank you so much for choosing me! I love being a teacher and it is my true passion. I have wanted to teach since I was a little girl. I graduated from Misericordia with a degree in Elementary Education, Special Education, and Early Childhood and received my master’s degree in Reading from King’s College. This is my 18th year teaching. I’ve taught autistic support, emotional support, learning support and this is my 10th year teaching Kindergarten.
I try to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all my students. I use picture schedules and social stories. This reduces anxiety and, in my experience, children thrive when they have structure and predictable routines. I try to hit all the learning styles when I teach my lessons. Aside from just doing worksheets, we sing songs, dance, do hands on activities, play games and learning centers. I want school to be fun and I want my students to be excited for learning. Kindergarten sets the foundation for the rest of their school career. I want my students to love school, but I also want them to know they are loved, and they can always talk to me about anything. I also try to have open lines of communication with parents, because we are a team!
