Welcome to First Grade! I am looking forward to getting to know you and another wonderful year of teaching at Kincaid.

My teaching philosophy is to create an environment for students that is nurturing, positive, and safe.
I believe students work best when treated with respect and I am dedicated to creating a community that embraces
understanding, compassion, and dignity. I have learned that students' individual differences
are best addressed when they are provided opportunities to succeed and when they have people who care about them
ready to help. I have high expectations for students and believe in empowering children to become independent life-long learners.
