Caitlin is a 4th grade teacher of 20 years. Her educational belief centers on guiding children to creating an underlying understanding that they can apply to life beyond the classroom. Beginning with creating a community of learners, she works beside students to create norms, rituals and routines that support student ownership and collaboration. She values implicit teaching of metacognitive strategies to support learners as their thinking develops, as well as designing opportunities for learners to demonstrate understanding in meaningful ways. She lives in Lakewood with her four-year-old daughter Luci, her partner Chris, and his two teenage step-sons. She is a swim coach during the summers and enjoys traveling.
