I have taught 5th Grade Advanced Academics, 3rd Grade, 6th Grade Special Education Science, 6th Grade ELL Science, 7th Grade ELL Science
My teaching style is loud, hands-on, interactive, and based on building personal relationships. I strongly believe in playing to learn and that students should laugh and have fun while learning the material. My classroom is effective but not traditional.

I am a hands-on, loud, perpetually moving teacher. I love teaching and in a test-driven, data-crazy world want to keep learning at the heart of what I do and keep making school a fun place to grown and learn!
