I currently teach a mixed age class K-2 in Cleveland, OH. Last year I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) at a boarding school for the poor and orphaned in Guatemala. I have had experience teaching and tutoring students of all ages.
I am trained in the constructivist approach as well as Communicative Language Teaching (CLT). This year I am implementing Daily 5 and Café!
I graduated Kent State University Summa Cum Laude.
My second grade teacher is the one who inspired me to be a teacher. Her love for learning was contagious! My K-8 years were at a suburban public school. I completed ninth grade at a private school and ultimately finished my high school diploma as a home school student through Indiana University's high school distance learning program. I have a variety of experiences as both a student and teacher in many settings.
I joined TpT as a source of income while I taught poor and orphaned children in Guatemala!
