Hello! My name is Ronda Pust. I am a first grade teacher. I have taught at Carmichaels since 2007.
Bio: I have an Elementary Education degree from Waynesburg University. I began my career by teaching second grade at Yellow Springs Elementary School in Frederick, Maryland. I then taught for thirteen years at Open Door Christian School in Waynesburg, Pa. I began teaching at Carmichaels Elementary as a long term substitute in fourth grade. I remained in that position for two years. I was then hired to teach first grade.
Philosophy: I believe that children should be motivated to achieve at their highest potential. Children should be challenged to apply what they learn to life so that true learning can continue throughout their lifetime. Content should be diversified to ensure learning for all types and to provide interest for each student. The teacher's role must be one of a role model who is constantly aware of the impression she makes.
