TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach 2nd grade internationally at an amazing American school! Our curriculum is just like an American curriculum complete with Common Core and teaching in English but I get the added pleasure of weekend strolls through the streets of Madrid, Spain. Before this, I taught 1st grade for five years at an wonderful private school in Portland, Oregon.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I set up very clear expectations and stick to them. I love to laugh with my students and make the school day fun with tons of learning. My big professional goal is to constantly work on differentiation. You can see that in most of my products!
