TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught just about every primary grade over the last decade! I teach at a small school where blended grades are the norm, and am flexible to jump into whatever grade needs filled. :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Creative and energetic, with a touch of sass. :)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My students tell me that I'm "the best teacher on the planet!" What more could you ask for? ;)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Educational Psychology from George Fox University. Masters in Education with a Reading Specialist endorsement from Corban University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I consider teaching to not just be my career, but also my hobby. I am passionate about character education, and building young people to become world changers.
