Thank you for taking an interest in my professional teaching portfolio.  Throughout these pages are substantiation of my professional development as a teacher.  As demonstrated through different mediums throughout this portfolio, I am passionate about teaching, but even more passionate about being there for my students, helping them and putting their needs first.  I am, forever, a learner-teacher, and constantly seek out ways to further develop my skills, knowledge, approaches, and teaching techniques.

“Teaching is a matter of being a learner and learning is a lifetime experience.  I know that my beliefs about learning and teaching continue to be shaped by all of my experiences and the relationships with others that are part of those experiences – my home and family, the work of researchers and educators, my daily observations and reflections in the classroom.  Learning to teach is an ongoing process.”
