Year joined Stella Faculty:
I was a teacher at Stella Niagara for over 30 years and enjoyed it tremendously. My children, now adults, also attended Stella Niagara. I and they firmly believe the education they received at Stella Niagara served as the basis to make them successful adults.
My position at Stella Niagara was recently redefined. As curriculum consultant it is my job to help teachers achieve their best as they teach their students according to the NYS standards.
Every child can be successful. Children learn in different ways. In order to reach all our students a teacher’s lessons should consider these different learning styles.
We strive to make students independent thinkers. It is important for teachers and children to realize that there is more than one way to approach a problem. Different method often lead to the same result. That does not make one approach any more correct than the others.
As curriculum consultant, my job is to help teachers attain these goals. I support my colleagues with ideas, materials and guidance. Hopefully this will result in a culture where everyone succeeds.
“You can do it!”
