What I am committed to providing Holaway Elementary students, families, and staff:

I am committed to giving our students hands-on experience to tie to their learning as well as support in creating a growth mindset. Our classroom should feel like a place where it is okay to fail and make mistakes, because that is the process of learning. I am committed to providing families and staff a teammate in facing any problems that our students may encounter.

Three things I am working on this school year are:

  • Incorporating student choice and interests into our everyday curriculum.  
  • Expanding my knowledge on Kagan Cooperative Learning strategies to implement in the classroom.
  • Implementing more restorative justice practices and reflection opportunities into my classroom management

Things I enjoy outside of school are:

I enjoy hiking, snowboarding and being outdoors. When at home, I spend most of my time with my dog Sully or binge watching Netflix.

A quote that I live by:

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
