TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my eighth year teaching, and I've taught in Tennessee, Colorado, and California! I've spent my entire career in kindergarten! I love the way kindergartners light up and get excited about learning. They inspire me every day!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love hands-on, partner/group work to facilitate social growth and inquiry skills. I believe that all children, regardless of ability level, have something to give, so I try to provide an environment where all children feel comfortable expressing themselves!
