Since 2006, I have worked in four different positions and two schools. Most of my experience has been with upper elementary, although I have run the gamut on abilities from Reading Specialist pulling out struggling students to my most recent position as a 5th grade Gifted Language Arts teacher. In 2016, I took off my "official" teaching hat to stay home and teach my own children while also running a tutoring business, mostly for Language Arts.
I would describe myself as a go-with-the-flow kind of teacher. I like to change things up and keep the kids on their toes!
