Education has been my career for more than 17 years. My experience includes teaching preschool, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, staff development for teachers, and college level undergraduate students majoring in education.
We learn that education is a life-long learning experience and that learning begins at birth with our parents as our first teachers. Teachers are extremely valuable in our school systems because they mold the lives of children and set the stage for a child's future through their teaching. I am passionate about devoting my life to helping teachers achieve their goals. My teaching style reflects my belief that everything we do is a learning experience, learning should be as much hands-on and collaborative as possible, and the fun of learning should last a life-time.
