TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a 5th grade teacher for 5 years, and I spent several years substitute teaching in multiple grade levels. I have also had a lot of amazing mentors and colleagues over the years who have inspired me to be creative and who have been great sounding boards for fine tuning my ideas.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The best feeling as a teacher is seeing my students so engaged and excited about a lesson that they don't even realize they are learning!
