I have been working as a lead teacher at a before-and-after school program and summer camp director for six years, ages K-5. I am also a licensed teacher substituting in PA.
I have a lot of skill in leading large groups of students and handling transitions. I'm a big picture kind of girl and feel like I bring a lot of energy to the classroom, as well as a go with the flow sort of attitude. I love being able to change lessons midstream to bolster student understanding in one area or extend in another. My daycare background gave me a lot of practice in hands-on learning.
Achieved the highest Keystone STARS rating in the state for a before and after school program.
I have a degree in Psychology with a focus on child development and a minor in Philosophy. I returned to school to earn my teaching certification for elementary school.
I am a twenty-something living with my fiancee, cat, dog, and snake in the Cumberland Valley. My passion is getting up in front of a class and digging into the curriculum with purpose.
