I have 14 years experience working in a New Jersey public school system, one year prior as a teacher's assistant in a Therapeutic Day Program, and 2 years prior as a resident assistant at a youth shelter.
My style is to recognize that all children are different, both academically and emotionally. Not all children march to the beat of the same drummer. I believe that children know what we teach them, and if we deem something developmentally inappropriate, we may be robbing those children of new knowledge that they may be ready for. Children are much more capable than we give them credit for.
I was rated as a highly effective teacher on my last and final evaluation.
I have a bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in elementary education.
I am a mom and stepmom of five kids, many pets, and the wife of a wonderful husband.
