Hello, my name is Sydney. I am a second grade teacher at a small private school in Watertown, MA. I absolutely love teaching but another passion of mine is traveling. So far I have been to seven different countries! I have many more on my list that I want to visit. In my free time (when I'm not traveling) I enjoy going to the beach, hanging out with friends and baking!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that all students have the ability to learn, and if they don't believe that themselves, then I am happy to be the one to show them that it's true!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I think establishing a relationship with the student is essential in the first session. I would ask him/her questions about themselves, their interests, and what they do for fun. I would also share information about myself. Then I would get to the academic portion of it towards the end.
