My Philosophy I believe it is my job to meet students at their current levels and help them to become independent thinkers and readers. Every sutdent comes to school with various background experiences and knowledge, so I must assess their backgrounds and build on them to teach the students to become life-long learners.
My Community The community in which I teach is rural, with small towns existing within the community.
My Environment DCES is the only elementary school in the county. The school serves students from pre-school through fourth grade. We have a special education department, Title I, and speech services available.
My Roles and Responsibilities I teach Title I to K-2. My mornings consist of inclusion in these classrooms, where I work with small groups, whole class, etc. I then provide individual and small group help to approximately 50 students in the afternoons.
