TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Wow! I can't believe how quickly time flies when you're having fun! Twenty-one years ago, I landed my first teaching position as a fourth grade classroom teacher and spent the first 8 years of my teaching career developing my craft at that level. With the birth of my daughter, I put my career on pause until I was called back by my district to be the Organizer of Professional Development for Paraeducators. Missing the classroom, I soon took on a part-time position teaching PreK and Kindergarten in the private setting. This was followed by a return to teaching fourth grade, but this time in the private setting. After three years, I decided to return to the public schools and accepted a position as a part-time PreK paraeducator in the local public school. What a super, fun experience that was! Needing to return to full time work, I am now a librarian's assistant in the same local public school, and I'm loving it! Having had this much variety, one might think I would have a favorite level. Honestly, each time I switch gears it's a new and exciting journey, so it's almost impossible to compare and pick a favorite. I have a passion for teaching; the level or capacity in which I teach doesn't matter. As long as I am teaching, I am happy!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to share my passion for teaching and learning with students, parents, and colleagues for the past twenty-one years. During this time period, I established a reputation for being a caring teacher who provided a safe, organized, and well managed classroom while maintaining high expectations for all students. It was, and still is, my belief that no child rises to low expectations. Through the collaboration of students, parents, colleagues, specialists, and administration, it continues to be my mission to ensure that every child I come into contact with is able to achieve and succeed to the best of their ability.
