I am in my eighth year of teaching kindergarten at Crossroads Charter Academy. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Central Michigan University, majoring in Child Development and minoring in mathematics and reading. I earned my Master's Degree from Ferris State University in Curriculum & Instruction. I love to read, cook, and spend time with family and friends. Teaching is an amazing job in that I get to grow and learn along with my students. I feel honored to be part of such a wonderful team (family really) of educators working to create enriching, meaningful learning experiences for their students. I could't imagine myself doing anything else!

Character Education

There are many qualities that we believe children should learn to possess in order to become compassionate individuals. We incorporate the knowledge of and ways to display these qualities into our curriculum and classroom environment. The character qualities that CCA promotes are:

  • Heroism
  • Generosity
  • Courage
  • Loyalty
  • Patience
  • Forgiveness
  • Friendliness
  • Self-Control
  • Self-Discipline
  • Patriotism
  • Joy
  • Wonder
  • Fairness
  • Empathy
  • Faithfulness
  • Trustworthiness
  • Graciousness
  • Courtesy
  • Charity
  • Honesty
  • Justice
  • Wisdom
  • Service
  • Stewardship
  • Initiatve
  • Perserverance
  • Mercy
  • Gentleness
  • Humility
Like Habits of Mind, we do not focus on all of these qualities in kindergarten. In kindergarten and first grade we work on the first ten qualities. We focus on one quality a month. At the end of the month at our awards assembly, a few children from each class are awarded for working the hardest to internalize and display the quality of the month. This is always an exciting time!
