TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've had the joy of teaching elementary school for 9 years. In that time, I've taught pre-k, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades. Regardless of age level, I've watched students flourish and learn, while receiving praise from parents for the activities I plan that allow for exploration, movement, and meaningful learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students learn best when they're up and moving, creating, and building understanding through the experiential and constructivist models.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have served as team leader for my grade level, as well as served as a mentor for first-year teachers. It's been my pleasure to work as the cooperating teacher for multiple student teachers.
