Amy Cullinane - 4K Teacher

My Qualifications

I earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater, with licensure to teach nursery school through sixth grade.

My Teaching Philosophy

"Let me play, and I will learn."

I strive to create a welcoming, nurturing environment where students can engage in learning at their own pace.  It is my job to set up opportunities that allow students to actively participate in their academic growth.  We do this through play, songs, art, movement and hands-on centers.  With partner activities, each student contributes to their own learning as well as the learning of others.

Why do I teach at St. Joe's?

I feel privileged to be able to teach and talk about God in my classroom.

Fun Facts about Me

I enjoy boating with my family in the summer, swim parties, being with friends, and walking my dog.
