TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have spent seven years teaching in a 1-3rd grade Montessori classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The Montessori approach is to follow the child. My children are active and keep me active trying to keep up! They learn by doing, and my classroom is often humming with little busy-bodies bustling about. It is my goal to help them develop internal motivation, a sense of independence and responsibility, and a desire to learn more.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my B.S. in elementary education from Taylor University, and an M. Ed. in Instructional Design and Technology from the University of North Dakota.

I live in Maryland with my shelter-rescued cat, Jealousy. I enjoy jogging, gardening, cooking, and most of all, designing instruction.
