Hi! Welcome to another great year of learning at Waynesboro Primary School! I have been teaching first grade for 11 years! I love teaching first grade and providing students with fun learning experiences! My beliefs on education are simple. I believe in a learning environment in which students can feel comfortable, where expectations and rules are consistent and clear. It is important to me that students feel safe and comfortable enough to ask questions and be themselves. O also believe that all children can and will learn but, the teacher must make learning meaningful and interesting. My constant goal as an educator is to ensure that every student reaches his or her full academic potential. I strive to take advantage when opportunity arises to teach beyond the mandated standards. I let my students know that I want them to do their personal best. Not only do the students learn as individuals, but students also work, laugh, and learn together making the most out of their day. We are a team in room 206! Teams work together, and together, everyone achieves more success!
