I have several years' experience tutoring all ages, and I am currently in my second year of teaching a self-contained 4th grade classroom.
I like to use a combination of direct instruction, group activities, structure and creativity! I treat my classroom as a theater, a sanctuary, an incubator for learning. I use a mix of compassion and firmness with my students who crave an adult figure who has high expectations for them and will only accept their best.
State Teacher Effectiveness Level of 5 in Math and Reading/Language Arts based on TCAP scores.
B.A. in English, Middle Tennessee State University M.A.T., East Tennessee State University
I am happily married to a college professor. We love to swap lesson plan ideas and discuss critical thinking!
