I am thrilled to be a member of the Bancroft Kindergarten team this year! I began my teaching career at the FAIR School, where I taught 4th Grade for 5 years and then moved to Kindergarten for 4 years. This will be my second year teaching at Bancroft.
As a child I attended St Louis Park schools and graduated from St Louis Park High School. Both my undergratuate degree, with a major in Political Science and minors in Elementary Education and Psychology, and my Master's of Arts in Education, where I focused on teaching writing, are from Hamline University. My teaching license is for K-8th grade with a Social Studies endorsement for middle school.
My teaching philosophy begins with embracing the whole learner, and balancing academic, social, and personal growth for each student. Throughout the year I work to help my students become independent learners who are able to explore, play, and inquire about topics that matter to them. I love to integrate movement and singing into my curriculum, and welcome family members of my students to bring their talents into our classroom!
