I have had experience teaching children in a variety of different ways for over ten years. I have taught classes, planned camps, been an assistant teacher, and have had my own classroom for five years. I have taught transitional kindergarten through third, and have loved teaching every grade!
I believe in teaching to each child's strengths. To me, this means using a combination of teaching styles that best benefits each student. This includes Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence theory, hands-on experiences, self-discovery, allowing for freedom and questions, project-approach, and centers!
Yet to be added
I attended a parochial grade school through eighth grade and a private, all-girl high school. I received an Honors BA in Early Childhood Education at St. Louis University. I received my MA in Early Childhood Education at Alabama A&M University.
I enjoy art-painting, making jewelry, and crafting! I love to swim and play with my dog. My husband and I enjoy traveling around the world and make time each summer to plan a trip. And I LOVE teaching!
