Philosophy of Teaching: One of the things I strive to create in my classroom is a sense of community among my students. I encourage a growth mindset and teach my students that we should learn and grow from all of our experiences, even the seemingly negative ones. I guide my students to learn from and help one another and to freely ask questions when they do not understand something or are simply curious. Authentic learning is also extremely important. Students should be engaged in tasks they can relate to their experiences and interests in the real world. If students can see how their learning applies to the world outside of school they are more likely to be interested in their learning. In addition, by solving authentic problems or completing authentic tasks,
students are engaged in critical thinking and problem solving skills that demonstrate the ability to apply their understanding, rather than merely repeating memorized material.
Hobbies and Interests: I love reading, dancing, and enjoying nature.
