About Mrs. Byrne
This will be my nineteenth 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 nine years old and our daughter, Juliette, is seven years old and they both attend school at Christ the King.
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe in a learning environment in which students feel comfortable, 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 to reach all children. 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.
