I have taught 4th and 5th grade for 7 years. I love working with teachers in my current position as instructional coach. I enjoy being a mentor teacher to interns, new teachers, and students from the colleges and Universities in our area.
I strive to be consistent and fair in my teaching practices. I enjoy fostering strong relationships with my students and their families.
