I have twenty-three years experience teaching Pre-K through Grade 8 in both public and parochial school districts located in urban communities. I am currently teaching music in a STEM school and use a lot of technology in my music class.
I have an eclectic style of teaching and try to incorporate technology and interdisciplinary studies wherever possible. Since I teach in an urban community I make sure to differentiate for ESL/ELL students and those in poverty.
Teacher of the Year- STEM Academy 2016
I have earned both a Masters in Social Work and a Master's in Education, Curriculum and Instruction in an Urban Based Setting. I am certified to teach Music in Grades pre-K through twelve and ESL grades 1-6.
I have a wonderful, supportive family who lights up my life! I come from a family of educators and grew up with a love of teaching in my heart!
