TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an elementary teacher for over 17 years. I am currently teaching Pre-K in a public school which has a large number of English Language Learners. I have also taught 3rd, 2nd, and Kindergarten. In addition, I was a substitute teacher for 2 years. Prior to that, I taught preschool and provided daycare.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to make learning fun!
