I have 7 years of experience in Elementary Education. For the past 2 years I have worked in a Certified position in a 2nd grade classroom and the school I teach in is starting to make a shift toward Mastery-Based Education. Previous to certification, I worked for 2 years in Special Education Classes with students with mild to severe disabilities Before that I worked as a Substitute teacher in a couple school districts. My first experience with students out of High School was when I joined an Elementary Music Team Assembly Program called Primary Focus. I spent 3 years on assembly teams performing in over 1,000 elementary schools with a character building program teaching Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.
I am NOT a lecturer. I like to give small mini-lessons and then allow the students to experience learning for themselves. I like to involve Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic experiences as well.
Several Class Awards for P.E., Computers, Library, and Music.

I love music. I used to sing in a music group and in church. My favorite sport is basketball. My favorite hobby is playing board games. Not like Monopoly though, I am talking about really fun, but more obscure board games like Carcassonne.
