I have taught 6th grade for 8 years at both the middle school and elementary school setting. I am GATE-certified and enjoy incorporating choice into my lessons. I work with 1st and 4th graders as well during the summers. I love working with children and learn from them every day!
I love creative assignments and choice. I try to utilize multiple intelligences learning styles whenever possible! I love to let my students read from the carpet (even in sixth grade) or sit on their desks to change up their perspective. I love using the Socratic Method with my students.
I was awarded a provost scholarship during my undergraduate degree and offered a fantastic fellowship for my graduate education program!
I have my undergraduate degree from NYU, where I studied creative writing. I've taught gifted middle school students and mainstreamed elementary school students for the past 8 years. Prior to teaching sixth grade, I was a reading specialist who worked with high-school immigrants who read at the kindergarten level.
I love reading, creative writing, working out, swimming in the ocean, and being around positive people!
