ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love teaching! I love to see how I can reach different students in different ways, and how I can reach multiple learning styles with one assessment. I think it is important to establish a positive classroom environment that will excite students about learning in my room. I focus on building relationships, then diving into my assessments. I try to create lessons that let students explore the learning on their own, or in groups. Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnBAgG1IRMgQIDsOdeFKuUw
