I have had the opportunity to be the director of a private pre-school, that is well known for its developmentally appropriate practice within early childhood. I have also had the privilege to teach all subjects of fourth grade within the Texas public school system, as well as third grade within the Michigan public school system. Due to my well rounded professional experience, I bring a diverse and creative perspective to my TPT resources.
My teaching style can best be described as dynamic and creative. I believe children need to be inspired and feel a personal connection to the subject material in order to optimize their learning. Children also learn by doing rather than hearing or watching, so my materials are engaging and relevant to the ages being taught.
