TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught Reading/Language Arts and Social Studies for four years. For two years I taught grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 at a private school. The last two years I taught 5th grade at a charter school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal as a teacher was to foster a life-long love of learning and to encourage students to understand their strengths and weaknesses. My strength as a teacher is that I constantly think outside the box and I always have new ideas.
