Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching for over 20 years, and couldn't imagine doing anything else. Not only do I love my job, I love the people with whom I work, especially the cherubs. As Peggy O'Mara states, "The way we talk to children becomes their inner voice." Because of this belief, I speak to cherubs with self-empowering statements and teach them the 7 habits of happy kids, adapted by Sean Covey. By the time students leave my classroom, they not only are equipped with critical thinking skills and a mastery of the CCSS, they are problem solvers, risk-takers, and cooperative team members. My students enter my classroom an eager learner, and leave a family member.
