I've been teaching for over 15years. I've taught kindergarten, first, second, fourth and fifth grade and I love every minute of it! I received my bachelor's degree from Colorado State University and I got my master's degree from New York University.
I love guiding the children to go beyond their own expectations. I believe in challenging children to reach their fullest potential by providing a stimulating classroom environment that fosters self-confidence, independence, respect for others, hands-on experiences and embracing their natural curiosity. It's exciting to see how far they can go given the tools and the knowledge. Each child is unique and is encouraged to express their opinions, nurture their ideas and collaborate with others. I want them to aspire for more and have fun doing it!
