I have been teaching for 26 years, most of which has been in Title 1 schools. I have taught in both self-contained and departmentalized classrooms.
My teaching experience includes:
I enjoy teaching with technology and reinforcing skills with games. Learning is not a spectator sport, so I look for ways to make my lessons memorable, meaningful, and engaging.
I strive every year to teach my curriculum to the very best of my ability. It is one of my personal goals to make connections with each of my students. I was very touched one year when one of my most challenging students cried on the last day of school because he was going to miss me over the summer.
Not only do I love teaching, I also love learning. My formal education history includes:
I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family in my spare time.
