I've taught in both public and private schools, including nine years teaching kindergarten. I'm now on a new journey teaching 3rd grade.
I strive to create an organized, stimulating classroom and engaging, challenging lessons. My teaching philosophy is that students learn best by DOING and with that in mind I strive to create hands-on lessons that meet the diverse needs of learners and enables them to become independent thinkers.
