3rd Grade Teacher
My educational and professional background have given me an empathetic lens when viewing a wide range of learning and social challenges. I believe in a balance between progressive values and structure to help students feel supported and heard during academic and social engagement. Students should have opportunities to connect with the natural world through observation, exploration and inquiry. In the classroom I want to highlight the importance of incorporating an anti-bias curriculum, along with creating a common language for inclusivity to inspire social justice and change. I am looking forward to joining the OCS-South team and to be in place where I can serve the community in which I belong.
