TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Energetic, Engaging, Inquiry-based, Data driven, Organized, Rigorous. I love teaching and education! I taught 1st grade for six years and am now a full-time mentor teacher. I currently mentor teachers and work in classrooms from pre-school to sixth grade. I have the privilege of working with over 20 new teachers that constantly inspire me and my own teaching practice. This experience has also allowed me to work in areas such as art, special education and physical education that I might not have had the chance to ever teach. I feel blessed to have had my eyes open to so many wonderful school experiences and teachers!
