TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I received my General Education Classroom Teacher (1-6) Initial Certification in 2011. Since then, I had added Early Childhood (B-2), Special Education (1-6), Early Childhood for Special Education (B-2), Literacy Education (B-6), and TESOL Education (K-12) certifications to my resume. I have taught in almost all of these grades and all of these areas.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe the best learning happens during hands-on activities and interactive experiences.
