Glimpses of Your Teacher

I love learning! Especially about how students learn best, which draws me toward student-centered and learning-centered teaching. The workshop approach I’ve been adapting for my classroom means I do less assign & assess and more cognitive apprenticeship (a fancy term for one-on-one conferences).

I also believe in modeling what I expect of my students. This summer, I read the books from Brink’s Summer Reading list and finished a total of 28 Books for Pleasure.

Other things I love: spending time with family, hiking, travelling, beating my sweet husband at Hand & Foot, and playing with our granddaughter, Ella, who just turned 2!
