My name is Deanna Simoncini. I have been teaching for 10 years. I value individuality, and strive to meet the needs of each student. To accomplish this, I use a variety of hands-on activities and different teaching strategies to accommodate diverse learning styles. I truly believe that if you can get the students’ hands on the material it will create a higher understanding and become more real to them. I also recognize the importance of trust, and successfully establish relationships with students that resulted in a safe and comfortable, yet challenging, learning environment. I understand the level of professionalism and communication required for long-term success in this field.
