I am a certified teacher with ten years of classroom teaching experience. I have taught students in K-8 in all general subjects and I have also taught music and history to students in grades K-12. At present, I am teaching technology to students in K-8.
I believe that students learn best when actively engaged. It is important to me that I tap into students' interests and natural learning tendencies as a springboard for learning new concepts. I try my best to keep students excited about their lessons through multi-sensory learning activities and a positive learning atmosphere.
