TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught school age kids in a day care setting as well as I just finished up student teaching in a 2nd grade regular ed classroom as well as a k-2 special education classroom. During my time in collage I completed fields work with Head Start, Early Head Start, Milwaukee Public Schools 3k/4k program and in 1st and 2nd grade classrooms. In the past year I have started presenting at conferences and workshops about Sensory Processing Disorder.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very hands on teacher. I love to watch the light bulbs flash on in my kids eyes and to see then truly experience learning.
