I am so excited to begin another year as a third grade teacher at Windham Primary School!
I have wanted to be a teacher my whole life and feel so lucky that I get to do a job I love every day. The best part is watching a student who has been struggling finally understand the difficult concept. In our classroom the students will learn through: inquiry, from their peers as well as their teachers, playing games and challenges that will encourage them to problem solve. I really encourage the students to try new things and that having a growth mindset is far more important than any skill. Students are given a structure that allows them to show growth without feeling left behind or bored. At college I also studied music and art so I try to incorporate that into our classroom too.
I am married to a wonderful man, Adam, who is a firefighter/EMT for both Windham and Saco. We have three children, who are all starting new schools this year. Leanna is going into 6th grade, Bryce starts 4th and Isaac will begin preschool in the fall. They keep me busy with hockey and baseball/softball. However we also love going camping together and experiencing other family adventures; some even include our 2 rescue dogs, Duke and Duchess.
Come back and check out my 2020-21 class of “ROCKSTARS.” We are sure to do tons of learning and have some fun too!
