TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught first, second, fourth, and fifth grades. I am currently teaching fourth grade at a small Pre-K through 8 school in Connecticut.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe above all that learning should be fun and engaging for all students. I enjoy expressing my creativity in my lessons. As teachers, I feel that communication is one of our most important tools. Establishing a positive home-school connection is extremely beneficial to the students and the learning community as a whole.
