Introduction

My name is Nicole Watson and I am a first year teacher at SNES. I am excited to begin this journey with you. My personal teaching philosophy is "If children can't learn the way we teach, we need to teach the way they learn". I am a huge fan of differentiating instruction so children can understand and grow academically and I have plenty of experience adapting lessons to fit students' individual learning needs. It brings me joy to watch my students apply something I have taught them to daily activities.
Safety is a big priority in my classroom. Your child will be cared for and respected, and I will do everything I can to ensure they feel safe and loved. We will practice safe classroom procedures daily, learn responsibility and how to help others as well as ourselves, and use new skills to learn and grow.
I put a big emphasis on the 3 "R's" in my classroom- Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience. We will apply these 3 "R's" to the 7 Leader in Me habits throughout the year.
