TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For the past 13 years I have taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, Enrichment, and AIS Math/Reading in NY's Hudson Valley region. I am passionate about technology, creativity, MATH, and having fun in school! I hold myself to the highest standards possible through my self-created materials and lesson presentations with the hope that my students will show as much pride in their own work as I show in mine! I am also a freelance writer, and my work has been featured in major publications such as Good Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living magazines.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students in my class learn the importance of effort! Hard work gets rewarded in my room, just like it does in the world outside the classroom doors. Critical thinking and wondering aloud are encouraged. 7-12 year old children have a wonderful natural curiosity that I encourage them to act upon every single day that they come to my classroom! My greatest wish as a teacher is for my students to love learning, and to start to discover what they are passionate about in life!
