Hi! My name is Ms. Brodeur, and I'm excited and honored to be your child’s teacher!
Here is a little about my background. My bachelor's degree and teaching credential are from the University of California, Riverside. I have a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from Azusa Pacific University, This will be my twenty-seventh year of teaching five and six-year-old children. I have taught kindergarten for twenty years and first grade for six years.
My biggest classroom rule for myself and for my students is this: treat others the same way that we would like to be treated. That is why I do not believe in yelling at students. Humiliation and sarcasm have no place in my classroom. Instead, I prefer providing positive motivation first and loving and appropriate consequences when necessary. Making mistakes is a welcome aspect of the learning process. My class management strategy is aligned with the philosophy found at https://www.smartclassroommanagement.com/
One thing to know about me is that I love animals! My dog's name is Archie. He is a Doberman. Archie loves to play, snuggle and take my things into the yard to get my attention. His best friend is Holly, a Golden Retriever. She loves to go swimming in “her” pool. In fact, it's hard to get Holly to come back out of the pool! In addition, we are now fostering a stray cat named Charlie.
Other interests I have are music and learning to use new technology. Currently, I am learning to fly a drone.
I look forward to getting to know each one of my students and their interests!
