I am currently in my ninth year of teaching. I have spent two years as a sixth grade teacher, three years in third, two years in fifth, and my remaining classroom exposure has been teaching and developing curriculum for a global studies/cultural diversity class for grades kindergarten through fifth grade. I am a Nationally Board Certified teacher with a focus on middle childhood generalist. I recently graduated with my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in technology.

I live in central Florida, land of many tourists and Disney magic. I am lucky enough to teach a course that I am completely in charge of curriculum development as well as presentation. I am teaching students a skill that is a lifelong need. Students learn to appreciate different cultures from around the world and see others for their strengths, as opposed to merely seeing only their differences.
