TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Currently I am an assistant in a Montessori 1st-3rd classroom. I previously taught 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th science and language arts, tutored K-12 ESL, and homeschooled my kids for two years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm influenced by Montessori methods, creating work that can be hands-on and self-checked.
