The teaching profession is constantly evolving and innovation in teaching requires new learning strategies. I strive to keep myself informed and gain knowledge in order to be the best educator that I can be. Presently iPads and 21st century learning are my learning goals.
In June 2011, I entered the 21st century teaching contest in my school board and I received the innovative teacher award for elementary. In June 2012, my application for a 21st Century Innovative Teaching project was selected. The project (eportfolios) focuses on engagement as a mean to increase student achievement, promotes differentiated instruction, communication, creativity, collaboration and inquiry.
I am trilingual. I speak, write and read Spanish, French and English. My Spanish culture is very important to me and I continue to celebrate my Spanish traditions and customs with my family and friends.
I love being a teacher, creating fun as well as meaningful and exciting activities for my students. I do my best to support my student's learning and independence in a loving manner. I strive to make my classroom developmentally appropriate and centered on the needs of all my students while providing a rich learning experience. My classroom is a safe, supportive and respectful environment where good behavior and manners are rewarded daily.
Finally, if I love being a Kindergarten teacher is that I strongly believe that students who love coming to school (in Kindergarten) will stay in school for a very long time and achieve whatever their hearts desire.
