TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 10th year of teaching. I have experience teaching preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. While I have truly enjoyed each of those grades, Kindergarten has absolutely captured my heart.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to provide my students with engaging, hands-on activities that suit their interests, strengths, and needs. I believe students learn best through open-ended, hands-on activities. It is so exciting to watch their interest and skill grow in an "workshop" environment-where their creative ideas and different approaches are encouraged.
