I have teaching experience in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade levels, in both suburban and rural school districts. Through my experiences in education I have learned that the best way to become a successful teacher to hold high expectations, think creatively, be versatile and sensitive, be curious, show confidence, and emphasize the fun in learning.
I teach curriculum that is cross-curricular. I specialize in taking complicated information and presenting it in an easy-to-understand format. I thrive in integration of technology into instruction and integrate all new forms of technology within my classroom as I come to find out about them.
