Rooted in current educational research and brain science, we’re designing a learning environment that is flexible and designed to meet the needs of all learners. This begins with investigating how each child learns best and continues through a learner-centered approach.
Our school is a nature school held at Mission Bay in San Diego. Our beliefs and teaching styles reflect closely to Waldrof and Reggio Emilia. We believe in individualized learning and learning through experiencing the world around us. Our school uses the environment and ecosystem around us to teach students about their impact on the world. Our teachers are dedicated to providing academic support according to each child’s personal needs. We have small ratios (1:5-8) and currently have only two classes (toddler and Pre-K/Kinder). We have the capability to add a third class with older students (1st-2nd grade) or another younger class.
I am an experienced educator who is seeking to form a small group learning pod for the 2021/2022 school year.
This past year I ran a successful pod with PreK students (3-5 year-olds) but I am willing to work with students ages 3 years-old through 8 years-old. I have previously worked as an elementary school teacher (Kindergarten/1st grade) and I also have experience as a private tutor, a nanny and in daycare settings. work as a private teacher for a single family for the 2021/2022 school year.
I would provide lessons that include Literacy (Reading/Writing), Math, Science, Social Science, Art, PE and Music concepts. I also plan to incorporate additional creative activities into the lessons based off of the students’ interests. I am comfortable with developing my own standards-based lessons or alternatively I can follow a curriculum provided by parents.
