I have been teaching for 9 years. Three years as a special education teacher, 6 years as a kindergarten teacher, and now beginning my 10th year as a new 1st grade teacher. I am also certified in ESOL and have an advanced degree in curriculum and instruction.
I am a very structured teacher. I like to be very organized. I teach with my heart and guide the students, so that they feel safe and learn.
