K - 3rd Grade Teacher
Hi, my name is Linda Fors. I live in Spring City. I love camping, fishing, hunting and being outdoors. I also love to garden so I can freeze and bottle fruits and vegetables to last us through the winter and to share with friends and neighbors.
I have been teaching for 20 years. I have A Child Development Associates, Montessori Certification in Early Childhood, and a BA in Early Childhood Education. I have a positive teaching style, dedication, and great compassion for children. My focus is on developmentally appropriate practices to aid in the growth of the whole child. I have learned about many different types of diversity in children and their families and how to provide to them skills, resources, and education.
I believe that the classroom needs to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing environment where the children learn respect for self, others, and their environment, and to gain a helping community perspective.
Every child is unique and diverse; I will respect their individual needs and celebrate their cultures. I believe children need to experience and explore every aspect of life that includes: science, history, geography, art, music, literacy, language, math, physical, health, gardening, culinary skills, and conflict and resolution. I will continue to learn and grow as a teacher for the children.
