TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching for 10 years. For several of those, I had the opportunity to focus on science and social studies for 4th-6th grades in Pasadena, California.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Education should engage students in critical thinking and problem solving while stimulating creativity and curiosity. I teach using a hands-on, multi-sensory approach that nurtures and develops students’ various talents and links content standards to meaningful experiences. I believe in an academically rigorous, well-rounded, child-centered curriculum that fosters growth with high expectations and positive reinforcement.
