Hi, my name is Tiffany Demasi, third grade teacher. This is my first year at Sienna Crossing and I am excited to have this opportunity to teach Math and Science again. I graduated from the University of Houston in 2011. Go Coogs!!!
I am happily married to the love of my life, and we have four children, ages ranging from 17 to 22. My husband and I love spending time together, we love food, and we love cooking together. Puzzles, puzzles, puzzles, I love making puzzles. I also like being outside, so I took up gardening a couple of years ago and I mainly just grow flowers. Art is something I love, love going to art shows and seeing things through other peoples eyes. Art tells a story and I find it very eye opening when I just look. I look with out being critical. It reminds me that we are all different and everyone sees and thinks things differently. So, I try to keep my eyes wide open. Never judge. I guess that is why I love kids so much because they are young and have the whole world in front of them. It is a beautiful place and our children have the power to keep it that way. All children!
My teaching philosophy is that all students are capable, I care about the type of people my students become MORE than I care about the scores they make on a test. Showing good character and a valid effort is more important to me in my classroom than their ability to grasp concepts for an exam. I believe ALL students can achieve anything if they know that you care. My classroom becomes a family where students want to be and want to learn. I am a BIG supporter that people (our children) learn in different ways, in result I try to differentiate my lessons with different learning styles. The lessons I have created are interactive with hands on activities that keep students interested. I believe that if you treat everyone equally and to also create an environment that is comfortable for all, modeling life skills with real life activities starting on the first day of school. I am committed to my profession of teaching and I make a promise to my students every year that my goal is your success. I build that respect at the beginning of the year, so if the students witness what I'm doing and showing I will get respect in return but the kids have to be onboard to or it won't work. My promise is, I want ever quit. Your child's success is my goal. It takes a village and YES, sometimes it gets hard but we all have to work together!
