Quality over quantity. I like to deeply explore concepts rather than to oversaturate the minds of my students with "standards" that were created by politicians rather than educators.
The positive feedback that I have received over the years from my students and thier parents are my proudest honors.
I possess degrees in Elemenary Education, Reading, Special Education and Psychology.
Having my daughter was the greatest "teacher development" that I have ever received.
