Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings! My name is Mrs. Kirby and I teach 3rd grade at Paul Road School.
I receieved my Bachelor's Degree from SUNY Brockport and am currently enrolled as a graduate student there. I am taking my last course this fall and then I will have my Master's Degree in Teaching Literacy B-12. This has been an exciting part of my education and I am very fortunate to be able to put the most recent practices to use in my own classroom.
Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my husband, Farmer Chad of Kirby's Farm Market, hiking, going to concerts (especially Avett Brothers shows) and taking my dogs on adventures. Farmer Chad (also known as Mr. Kirby) and I live on his family farm and are surrounded by apples, cherries and peaches. It always smells great and there is a lot to do over the summer!
While I enjoy music, nature and animals, teaching is my passion. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by a positive team and staff and have had wonderful experiences with the PRS students. As an educator, it is my goal to teach students about kindness and that they have the power to change the world around them. I beleive in teaching with the a Critical Literacy lens and finding ways to empower students with engaging and thought provoking lessons, discussions and hands-on activities. As the great Dr. Seuss once said, "Kid, you'll move mountains."
