Montessori at heart - traditional in practice. 4 years in and (one as a traditional teacher). Bilingual Early Childhood all the way through 5th grade Reading Bootcamp...yippee! Throw in experience as an assistant robotics coach, 3rd grade math tutor and arts/crafts and you have me :) Working in a STEM school and trying to help in becoming a STEAM!
Well, I hinted at the fact that I am a Montessorian. I feel that our children must be given the opportunity to explore and manipulate materials. If they are always told what to do and what to think...how will they problem solve on their own?

I am the proud mama to a wonderful 6th grade boy. He gives me a reason to get back in there and work even harder each day. The truth is that I became a teacher to spend more time with him. Crazy huh?
