I am a seasoned educator who holds certification in gifted, early childhood, and middle school education in the state of Georgia. I have two years teaching experience as a first grade teacher, six years experience as a gifted specialist teaching K-5, both in the public education sector, as well as having taught during summer sessions for the world-renowned Ron Clark Academy located in Atlanta, Georgia! I was also responsible for pioneering the first accredited gifted program at a public charter school in Cobb county. In 2012, I opened my educational consulting business that serves educators and schools as well as clients in the music and television industry. You can find out more about my journey by visiting my blog at www.beyondaclassroom.com.
I teach how children learn.
