I have been teaching for 20+ years. Teaching primary students is my passion! My strength as a teacher is creating creative lessons that will keep children's minds engaged and interested. I love offering teachers lessons that they are excited to teach. I am currently teaching second grade and absolutely love what I do!
I seek to inspire the love of learning and facilitate my students intrinsic motivation to pursue their interests... I believe that the heart of effective education is the simple act of genuine encouragement. I design a fun, loving, and exciting learning environment and I teach with love and laughter.
