TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a 2013 Teach For America corps member placed in Oklahoma City. I taught kindergarten my first year and looped with my kids to first grade. I am now an alumni of TFA and continue to teach kindergarten in Oklahoma City. Both of the schools I have worked at are urban low-income schools where 100% of the kids receive free lunch. In my first two years of teaching on average my students made over 1.8 years of reading growth both years!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that kids are kids and need to learn through play. Hands on experiences are the best. Social and emotional growth are just as important as academics.
