TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught grades 3, 4, and 5 for 21 years, and I have written curriculum materials for my entire career. I have a passion for Social Studies and love to make it interesting for kids

MY TEACHING STYLE

Making learning fun and engaging is my passion. I have a short attention span, so if I'm getting bored I know my students are! My goal is to make each year a memorable year for my students.
