TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught across grades levels from elementary to middle school. I taught Spanish to K-8th grade students for 8 years. I taught 4th grade (numerous subjects) for 8 years and am currently teaching Middle School Language Arts (6th, 7th, and 8th grades).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am always looking for new and inventive ways to reach my students. Every class is different so my teaching style sometimes needs to be tailored to suit their interests, strengths, and needs.
