I've had experience will all elementary levels. I've had a fruitful, fulfilling career for the past 16 years teaching students of varying backgrounds, language levels, and ability levels.
I am a laid back (or at least I think I am) hands-on teacher! I like to make the curriculum come to life however and with whatever I can. We sing, chant, dance, act, do projects, use technology, infuse humor..again, whatever it akes to make the abstract come to life and become "real" to young learners.

I've been a model teacher for numerous student teachers, taught others how to mentor, and have led staff developments on engagement and management. I know what it's like to be in the "trenches" every day with the greatest stakeholders looking at you expectantly. I also know what it's like to wish for more hours in a day and how it feels to juggle all of the roles..wife...mother...teacher...sister...daughter...friend. It's virtually impossible to do it all well, alone. You are not alone anymore. I am your quiet coffee-loving assistant, helping you to make your life/job easier! So, let's pour a cup and get started! Love ya! Kat
