I love teaching students of all ages! I've taught lower elementary, upper elementary, and middle school - and I've truly enjoyed them all!
Learning can and should be fun for students and teachers! I believe that RESPECT is a two way street, and that success hinges on it. I also believe that respect, a fun, welcoming atmosphere, and engaging and interesting lessons are truly the recipe for success. I'm a hands on teacher who enjoys creating kid friendly (and teacher friendly) resources for successful learning.
There is nothing better than former students stopping to tell me what they remember and loved about class. I am honored every time I meet my former students and learn that they have grown into productive adults. Positively impacting someone else's life is an incredible feeling!
My Bachelor's Degree is in business and my Master's is in Education.
Aside from teaching, I'm a wife, mother, and fitness nut!
