About Mrs. Byrne
This will be my twenty fifth year teaching at Christ the King and my twenty third year teaching first grade at Christ the King School. I came to CKS after receiving my undergraduate degree at the University of Vermont in elementary education. I also finished a master's program at UVM and earned a degree in Mathematics’ Instruction and Curriculum. My husband, Chris, and I have two children and we live in the town of Georgia. Our son, Nolan, is in his final year at CKS and our daughter, Juliette, is starting middle school.
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe in creating a learning environment in which students feel comfortable and where expectations and rules are consistent and clear. It is important to me that students feel safe and comfortable enough to ask questions, be themselves, and make mistakes. I also believe that all children can and will learn through meaningful learning experiences. Children learn through many different learning styles, and it is very important to me that I teach using many different methods in order to reach all children's learning styles. I differentiate lessons to help each child reach their potential and feel successful and inspired. I let children know that I want them to do their PERSONAL BEST! Celebrating success (big or small) along the way as a community of learners is something that is very important in my classroom. Not only do students learn as individuals, but students also work and learn together making the most of their learning.
