I have been fortunate enough to have had many teaching experiences in my life. I have taught in PreK, Kindergarten, Second and Fifth grades. I've worked in both private and public school settings. I continue to tutor students of different ages in different content areas.
I believe whenever possible a teacher should be a facilitator. Someone who sparks the child's interest, provides them with materials and/or information, and then allows the child to have the experience. Children should be given the opportunity to truly discover things with teacher support, redirection and/or guidance.
I graduated Cum Laude with a double major in Elementary Education and Psychology. I have also been nominated for Teacher of the Year. I have had a poem I've written get published in a book and also made into a song.
I have a BS in Education and Psychology.
I love creating my own materials. I have written a children's book that I use with my students every year.
