I began teaching Art in 2007 and switched to ESL in 2014. It has been a very positive change, full of challenges and rewards.
One of my primary goals is to form a rapport with my students, and show them that I care and want them to succeed. In return, they typically put forth effort in my class and trust that I have their best interest in mind. I like to have fun and tell stories about my cats. I talk to them about life, and learn from them, as I hope they are learning from me. When it is time to get serious, they continually make me proud.
I have been a yearbook adviser for seven years in a row. It does not come with an award, but it should!
I have a Bachelor of Science in Art Education with minors in Photography and Art History, and a Master’s Certificate in Teaching English Language Learners.
I like to shop online, exercise, cook, design lessons and spend time with my husband and two cats.
