I am currently teaching 3rd grade for the sixth consecutive year. I have taught students that range from severely below grade level to exceedingly above. I have previously worked with 4th and 1st grade students as well. I enjoy finding ways to challenge and motivate my students.
My teaching style focuses on engagement. I feel that if I can get my students "hooked" they will be more interested on the topic at hand.
Nominated for Teacher of the Year
I have a bachelors degree in K-6 Elementary Education from the University of South Florida.
I live in sunny Florida and enjoy working with young children. It is my pleasure to watch them learn and grow throughout the years. Now that I have a child of my own I feel more sensitive to the needs of the students I teach. I recently read somewhere, "Every student in my class is a parents whole world" (source unknown). This impacted me greatly because it reminds me that each little life in my classroom should reach their full potential daily. It is my mission to help them strive for and reach their goals.
