TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been a teacher since 2006. I've spent time working in public, charter, and private schools. I've taught all elementary grade levels. While I've loved teaching each grade, second grade has been my home for the bulk of my teaching career. After many years of working as a private tutor in my time off, I recently left my full time teaching position and opened a Learning Center with another teacher. We are thrilled to have started this new chapter in our life as educators!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that helping children to develop a love of learning is paramount
