TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 5th grade for six years and spent one year working as a part-time STEM coordinator/math interventionist before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my toddler son. I'm now learning lots about early childhood development!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I highly value bringing authentic experiences into the classroom to support inquiry-based learning whenever possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Well, I think I received more positive parent notes and thanks than I did complaints as a classroom teacher. :)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.S. in Elementary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

um... I love coffee and chocolate! And chocolate coffee. Surely, not many of you can relate?
