TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught fifth grade in private Christian schools until leaving the classroom to stay home with my 3 kiddos. I am now preschooling my toddler

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love making learning fun and memorable. I want the students to look back on their year with me as one where they were challenged, stretched, and had their confidence grow because of all they accomplished.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
