TEACHING EXPERIENCE

14 year veteran teacher Team leader Elementary School focus

MY TEACHING STYLE

It is my philosophy that each and every student must feel that they are a valued member of your class. The key to a successful class is building relationships with each student. When a student feels that their voice is heard, they work harder, behave better, and enjoy school more.
