My Teaching Philosophy

As a learning specialist, I work primarily with students with disabilities. My philosophy is grounded in social and emotional learning; when a student feels supported in those areas, they excel much further. It is important to me that they feel prepared for whatever their post-secondary goal is. I will support any means which support that end. I believe this grant will aid in this pursuit as it creates novel learning experiences outside of the classroom which students will carry with them into their next achievements.

Building Block Spotlight: Personal Mindset

I believe students demonstrate this skill when they are showing the actions to fully engage in their work. I believe that planning meaningful instruction which is student centered supports students' ability to maintain focus on tasks despite internal and/or external distractions.
