The Basics

Authentic Teaching is based on my 17 years of experience as a teacher. These are philosophies developed from my life, non-profit experience, and merged with my years of teaching. It is the hardest job in the world. Some days, it just does not happen. But, when the magical moments, the transformations, and the kids you love grow from the seeds you plant….it is the best job in the world. Authentic Teaching is based on 5 basic principles-

  • Caring for yourself!
  • Caring for your students…no matter what!
  • Creating a community where every kid is welcome to be authentic and learn!
  • Challenging and inspiring students.
  • Committing to be a part of a team with your co-workers.

I will share ideas, tips and tricks, and answer your questions about pretty much anything big or small! Let’s start building Authentic Teaching!
