I believe in holding my students to a high standard of excellence, while doing my best to create a classroom environment that encourages kindness and honesty among my students. I am looking forward to getting to know my students better and growing as a teacher. My verse for the year is “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalms 46:10a
I attend Meadowbrook Church in Wauwatosa. I am very passionate about music. I’ve played a wide variety of different instruments including guitar, piano, and violin. I have broken each of my limbs at least once, and each at different times- I was apparently a fragile kid!
My verse for the year is Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” I believe that each child is a gift with a unique personality and skill set, and that every child deserves an excellent education. As a teacher, I need to develop an environment where each of my students can grow. I need to foster relationships with my students, and encourage my students to develop relationships with each other. By doing this, I can recognize their interests and different learning styles. I will take this knowledge and adapt to their learning styles and differentiate when needed, using hands-on activities and projects to engage students. I want to encourage my students to work hard and develop a love for learning.
I attend Poplar Creek Church and I have been married almost 30 years. I have 6 children and 2 grandchildren. I love spending time with my family and I love to curl up with a book in my spare time.
