Welcome to Greentree Kindergarten - the best Kindergarten I know!
I received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education at Sam Houston State University. This is my 11th year of teaching and my 11th year at Greentree . I am proud to be a Greentree Gator! I feel so blessed to be able to teach at Greentree Elementary where every teacher is here because of a passion for teaching.
I believe that every child is different and has a personality all their own. I also believe that each child needs a safe, secure, and inspiring place to learn, grow, and discover in order to become different and unique individuals. I strive to ensure that each child is able to reach their fullest potential in as many aspects of their lives as possible by providing an environment that is safe, secure, and inspiring for everyone. I believe that each child has dreams in their lives, and it is my job, as a teacher, to help make their dreams real.
I consider my classroom to be a safe, secure, and inspiring place for children to learn, grow, and discover each day. The children have many opportunities to be leaders in the classroom, and are encouraged to express their feelings through writings or discussions. I work to teach students the importance of patience and understanding that each person is different, and that differences make people special and unique.
I feel that teaching is a very important job because as a teacher, I have the chance to shape the minds of children, but more importantly to teach them how to use their minds. I hope your child will find joy in learning, and will also find a sense of fulfillment from their new knowledge.
