Teaching has long been a passion of mine. Every minute I've spent working with students—as a tutor, a long-term substitute, or a teaching intern—has been deeply fulfilling and positive. I am so excited to be joining Webster's fifth-grade team this year.
I graduated from Cornell University with degrees in Comparative Literature and Film. I also have significant experience in multimedia technology and programming. So I enjoy pursuits that combine the technical with the creative—problem-solving and design challenges, hands-on exploration, project-based learning—and I intend to offer similar opportunities in my classroom.
My teaching philosophy centers around fostering independence and autonomy in my students. I believe that 5th grade is a pivotal year for gradually building up high levels of self-reliance and responsibility.
Some general academic goals we will aim for include:
• Math fact fluency with a focus on division facts
• Improved reading rates
• Daily writing and spelling practice
• Improved note-taking skills
Other goals—in reading, math, language arts, social studies, and science—will be set as the year progresses and students reveal their individual needs and interests.

To sum up, we will work hard, we will achieve academic and social success, and we will all grow together this year.
