I am a STEM teacher in an elementary school, teaching an integrated science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum for students in grades 3, 4, and 5. I am currently in my second year in this position. I previously taught Gifted and Talented and Technology in a different district, and substitute taught for several years before that.
I truly believe that learning can be fun, and I strive to make my lessons and activities engaging and enriching. I also believe that students need a strong foundation of basic skills before they can be expected to fully grasp some of the more complicated skills at higher grades.
None yet - I'm just starting out!
I have a B.S. in Special Education and Psychology and a M.A.T. in Special Education, both from The College of New Jersey.
So far I absolutely love everything about the world of education and I'm loving every minute of being a teacher!
