Teaching Philosophy

Jill is a firm believer in personalized education and she creates a learner profile for each of her students so she can plan lessons that meet each student’s educational needs. She gets to know her students as people and incorporates social and emotional learning into her classroom. Jill considers herself as more of an experiential teacher because she incorporates projects, outdoor activities, and designs lessons across different subjects that foster critical thinking and lifelong learning.
