Currently teaching (and loving) STEM. Have taught all day Kindergarten, 6th grade math,a 1st/2nd split, and 4th grade in inner city public schools.
Student-need-driven. Firmly believe in individualizing education. Prefer station-based teaching and learning for my students or project based learning.
A student I taught in 2012 who really struggled with math got an A on a recent test in 7th grade. She immediately stated that she could not wait to come see me and tell me because I "would be so proud". This was before she asked her current teacher to call her mom and brag on her A.
B.S. in Ed from Central Michigan University M.S. in Ed at Walden University
I love what I do. I make a difference, share knowledge, inspire confidence, and empower students to make the best choices to become the best people possible.
