Hello! I am so glad that you are viewing my webpage! Here you will find information about myself, but more importantly, information and updates regarding our classroom and what is happening.
To give you some information about myself, I am 26 years old and about to start my second full year of teaching. I have 1 and a half years of teaching experience under my belt, having previously taught in a rural school district in Illinois and at Wentzville School District last school year. I am very excited about starting at AMES! Currently, I live in St. Louis but will be moving to the Cottleville/St. Peter's area in December. I am from Edwardsville, IL where I attended Edwardsville High School and SIUE. I obtained my Bachelor's degree from SIUE in May of 2016. More details about me can be found in my Meet Miss Halford picture located to the left!
My teaching philosophy can be summarized in two statements: "It takes a big heart to help shape little minds" and "It takes a village to raise a chid". I believe that it takes caring, kindness, and compassion to help shape the future generations.
Please be on the lookout for notifications from our Teams Channel regarding what is currently happening in our classroom as well as here on the webpage! I will do my best to respond back to questions within 24 hours.
