It is an honor to be your child’s teacher this 2016/2017 school year. My teaching philosophy is student centered. I believe in leading with love and building a connection with kids. I believe in creating a safe learning environment where students are free to take risks and can accept that failure is an essential part of learning. I believe in empowering students to be responsible for themselves, their learning, and their choices. This ultimately builds confidence and teaches accountability. Each year students challenge me to be the best I can be in a role that I cherish…..teacher….guide.
On a personal note, I have been married for 20 years to Mr. Waterman and have two children, Joe 18 and Lilley 16. My son graduated from Woodbridge High this past June and my daughter will be a Junior this year at Woodbridge. “Go Worriers!” My family is loving and supportive and are the true loves of my life.
I am grateful to be here at Beacon Park and look forward to all of the great learning that will be taking place.
