ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have taught students who have a variety of learning styles and possess the natural ability to ignite passion and enthusiasm for learning in all children. I help each child develop pride and confidence in their strengths so they can use that self-confidence to drive them in the face of academic challenge. Learning about my students' personal interests helps me differentiate my instruction to meet their needs in a way that is interesting and challenging to them resulting in a love for learning.
