TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I had loads of fun teaching fourth grade for ten years. This year, I've moved into the exciting role of second grade teacher! It has renewed my joy and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is a blend and mix of a variety of styles. I'm always open to try something new and improved!
