I am currently getting ready to teach in Costa Rica for a year. I will be teaching English K-5. To prepare for this new adventure I am working toward my ESL endorsement and learning Spanish. The past two years I taught 4th grade at a semi-rural school district. I have experience working with children as a camp counselor, aide, tutor, educational intern and teacher. I have also spent time abroad in Ghana, West Africa working in the educational system.
I believe that learning should be authentic and engaging. I also love creating and planning lessons that are student-motivated (i.e. students help come up with the topic of study).
Yet to be added
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I am in the process of obtaining an ESL Endorsement and TEFL Certification.
I love teaching and am so grateful to be able to wake up every morning and love what I do.
