TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a world traveling, zany fourth grade teacher! I started my teaching career working with sixth graders in Spain as a Fulbright scholar. I then moved to Yakima, Washington to teach 4th grade (and a year of 3rd). When I'm not in the classroom I'm traveling the world with my husband Josh. In the last 3 years we've volunteered teaching children in Nicaragua, backpacked through Mexico and Belize and spent a month exploring Thailand.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Project-based learning, student-centered classroom, high expectations and clear management and routines
