Ms. Thorpe joined the fourth grade team at Berkley Street School three years ago after receiving her B.S. in Elementary Education and Mathematics from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). In her time at TCNJ, she gained valuable experience in almost every elementary grade and she loved teaching them all!
As a core part of her teaching philosophy, Ms. Thorpe believes that students should be encouraged to question the world around them, allowing them to make their own discoveries about the world as well as about themselves. Along with this, she believes that by planning innovative lessons with modern references, she can make learning accessible and relevant to her students’ lives. Ms. Thorpe also tries to intertwine content areas and provide cross-curricular connections for her students whenever possible.
When Ms. Thorpe is not in the classroom, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. Ms. Thorpe can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
