TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This will be my third year teaching elementary school in Texas. I have taught 4th grade Reading, Writing, and Texas History for the past two years and will be teaching ELA and World Studies in 6th grade this coming school year.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe teaching should be fun and exciting for every student! If I'm having fun while teaching, the kiddos will be having fun while learning!
