Some thoughts from Ms Kaeser:
In your opinion, what is special about St. Stephen School?
Family atmosphere and small class sizes.
Why did you want to become a teacher/administrator?
To teach and mentor our most valuable resource…children.
Do you have a specific goal to achieve through your teaching, a philosophy or desired outcome?
To let children I teach dream, imagine, learn and reach their highest potential.
It is important to read aloud to students on a regular basis. I like to share my favorite books, introduce them to my favorite authors, and show my enjoyment for reading. In turn, it provides them with an opportunity to do the same.
Students do not learn the same way. I strive to meet the diverse needs of my learners by differentiating instruction and providing them with a variety of learning experiences and activities. I assess and update my teaching practices, to meet their changing needs.
I believe that students should be challenged, at their level. I encourage students to put their best effort into their work, even when it seems difficult. I want students to try their best, without being afraid to make mistakes. I encourage students to keep a positive attitude when they make mistakes because these are opportunities to learn and grow.
