TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I’ve taught K-5 after school programs, ESL classrooms, all ages in a motel room in Brazil, Down syndrome preschoolers, and other wacky adventures. These days I run camps and design hands-on math learning activities, games, and explorations in my business Growing Smart Kids

MY TEACHING STYLE

I help kids learn through exploration, play, and creative questioning. My style is very tactile and hands-on.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BA in speech-language pathology MA in linguistics, specializing in TEFL/TESL. But my real education was in the 20+ years that followed, with hundreds of kids as my excellent teachers.
