TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 8 years! I spent my first year and a half teaching Pre-Kindergarten in Chicago. I then received a great opportunity to start a preschool program in a school district in Iowa, so I moved from Chicago to the Des Moines Area and taught an inclusive preschool program for 2 years before moving to teach Kindergarten in the same school! I also am an adjunct professor at a local college teaching courses on Early Childhood Curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in having high expectations for even our youngest learners, while providing developmentally responsive instruction.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

This past summer, I was FINALLY able to obtain my Master's Teaching License! YAY!

When I am not teaching and learning, I love spending time with my friends, family, and a great book!
