I have been a teacher for 6 years in Orlando, FL and recently moved to my hometown of Melbourne, Florida to teach 5th grade. I have taught 1st grade, 4th grade, 3rd grade, and am currently teaching 5th grade Math and Science. I served as team leader of my 4th grade team for the 2011-2012 school year.
I believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged and having fun while working cooperatively with their peers. While it is important to meet the demands of standardized testing, I believe that making learning fun and engaging through cooperative learning should be a top priority.
Yet to be added
I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2008 with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and an ESOL endorsement. I am currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Educational Administration.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our son, Robert James, who was born June 5, 2017.
