This is my 18th year in education which includes 11 years as an elementary school teacher 5 years as an Academic Coach, 1 year as a Reading Specialist grades K-8 and presently 1 year as an Education Consultant.
As with all things in life I believe in a "balanced" approach which nurtures the whole child as well as instilling the desire to be a life-long-learner which is how I view myself.
