Welcome to Mrs. Herron's class!
Who is Mrs. Herron?
Originally from the Chicago area, I moved to Colorado, California, and Georgia before finding my way to Arizona in 2005. I am a HUGE fan of the dry weather, but still struggle a bit with the excrutiating heat of the summer months.
Core Educational Belief
I believe that every student can succeed. As a teacher, it is my duty to help students gain the knowledge and skills that they will require to be active and productive citizens of our society. Teaching should be student-centered and students should be accountable for their learning and behavior as well as take responsibility for their decisions and actions. As a teacher, I am responsible for facilitating my student’s pursuit for knowledge in order to help them acquire the skills necessary to be life-long learners. I believe students should learn to be independent, yet have the skills necessary to work cooperatively. In addition, I believe that parents/guardians are crutial members of a students educational team and have a critical role in encouraging and supporting their child’s learning at home, in school, and throughout their community.
