Welcome to Room 124

I have been at Armatage since 2011. I have a B.S. from University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse, and a teaching License (Grades 1-6) from California State University Fullerton. I completed the Montessori Training at the College of St. Catherine. I also have an M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from University of St. Thomas. I have been teaching for 21 years. I have taught multi-age combinations of all grades 1-6, and recently I taught straight third grade.

Teaching Philosophy & Spotlight Unit

I appreciate the concept of differentiation in the Montessori program. I also find great value in the many materials used to give children a concrete experience of skills and ideas. One unit I enjoy teaching involves reading a novel to my students. In response, they create a diorama that reflects a particular part of the story they found most interesting.
