TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 1st grade for five years before making the switch to middle school where I taught 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I'm currently a board member with the Washington State Council for the Social Studies. Additionally, I have served as a Teacher Leader for the Ambassador Leadership summits at Tulane University and Harvard University. My experience includes teaching in the public school, as well as private schools, and homeschool sector.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on learning, and lots of visuals!
