6th Grade Team
Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”. Those words express my feelings about the 35 years I have had the privilege of teaching and learning with my students from kindergarten all the way to sixth grade. I earned my degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood from Florida Southern College and over the course of my career have had the wonderful opportunity to attend tons of additional trainings. I attended a Cooperative Learning Accelerated Achievement workshop where I learned some great structures to implement for optimal learning to occur. Kagan Cooperative Learning, and Multiple Intelligences are just a few of the previous years trainings that have shaped my classroom environment as well. I look forward to our 22-23 school year! It will be a year filled with discovery, technology, brain breaks and "house" celebrations!
