TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have worked with 1st through 7th grades, and everything in between! For several years I taught in multi-age classrooms (2nd/3rd, 2nd/3rd/4th, and 4th/5th).

MY TEACHING STYLE

A welcoming environment goes a long way. I always want my students to feel welcomed, included, and cared for. A comfortable student is a student who is ready to learn! I love to give kids as genuine an experience as possible to learn from. I like lots of visual examples, lessons that get kids up and moving around, and activities that create fun, lasting memories.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

There's no better honor or award than seeing my students grow up to be successful, both in school and in life!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Much of my teaching experience has been in Christian schools. My style is "Bibles open, kids active." :)
