TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have ten years of teaching under my belt. Starting in fifth grade then moving to first grade has provided me with a unique insight on where our young learners need to be in order to ensure success later.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Providing consistency while engaging students in all Multiple Intelligences is my goal. I set high expectations and work hard to help each student reach each one both academically and socially.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Summa Cum Laude, Golden Apple

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After graduating from high school I went into the workforce. I worked for an insurance company for almost thirteen years before I decide to get my education degree. I joined the adult education program at Regis University and graduated 3 years later with a Bachelors of Arts degree in education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I often come up with my best ideas at night after everyone else has finished their day. I hope others will find my midnight creations useful and inspiring.
