This is my 16th year teaching. I've taught 2nd grade for 6 years, and the rest of my time in 4th grade, but now I'm returning to 2nd grade after my maternity leave. I also own my own educational consulting business. My staff and I teach staff development workshops in school districts across Western New York.
I promote a warm, caring environment in my classroom. My classroom encourages small group activity, inquiry-based learning. I want my students to be independent thinkers who thrive on discovery.
