4& 5 Grade Language Arts and History
Welcome to our Language Arts and History Classroom! I am thrilled to be part of the Pinnacle Academy team. I grew up in New York City, and graduated from Stony Brook University with a degree in Education and History. I taught History in New York, Virginia and California. In California, I also had experience teaching STEM in K-8 and 4th grade. STEM has always been a passion of mine, and incorporating it into my classroom creates real life connections for students. In the past I have taught: the Launch program, a Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program for elementary students; Energy and the Environment; Robotics; and Design and Modeling. All of these classes use the design process, and make learning fun and engaging. I love using technology and hands-on experiences to motivate my students. The broadcast program engages students through technology and allows them to highlight achievements of other students at their school. This year I am looking forward to teaching at Pinnacle Academy, where my classroom will be filled with many fun and engaging activities.
Our vision is to guide students to reach and grow beyond their potentials. Our students are curious and innovative thinkers who strive to be accomplished, independent learners. Our graduates are tech-savvy, possessing collaborative skills, appreciate and embrace diversity.
