AS A TEACHER, I FOCUS ON THREE ESSENTIAL

Values

IMAGES FROM THE MUDDERELLA 5K FUN RUN, 2014

Throughout the Mudderella Fun Run, many things became apparent as I strove to complete the 5k obstacle course.  First, I had to remain diligent as well as use all of my strength and ability to get through the obstacles.  Second, I had to persevere as I tired halfway through, my goal of completion just ahead of me and completely within my power.  Third, without teamwork, I would not have been able to complete the course – piggyback rides, wheelbarrows, and helping each other over walls, haystacks, and more required two minds (and strengths!) put together.

These same values are what fuels my educational philosophy.  Teachers and students alike must be diligent, persevere, and work as a team to attain their goals.  If we do, anything is within our reach!

MY GREATEST JOY:

Motherhood

I’m a mother to four beautiful children: Roxie (8), Eden (6), Robbie (4), and Vanna (8 months). Fostering their love for learning has always been my first priority, and I would love nothing more to extend that same care to my future students.

THE ART OF TEACHING IS THE
ART OF ASSISTING

discovery.

– Mark van Doren

Being a teacher is so much more than simply teaching students lessons. Teaching is providing tools for learning and opening the eyes to new discoveries. It is shaping young minds and fostering their growth as students.

I AM NOT A TEACHER, BUT AN

awakener.

– Robert Frost

I don’t just teach, I awaken. I plan to show my students where to look, but allow them to decide what they see for themselves – because children must be taught how to think, not what to think.
