TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught for 8 wonderful years in 1st and 2nd grade! The first half of my career was in Florida where I served as part of the inaugural staff of a successful charter school, earning Teacher of the Year in 2010. The second half of my teaching career landed me in Nashville, Tennessee where I taught at an amazing magnet school. I'm currently enjoying a leave of absence to take care of my two boys, Sawyer and Cohen.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to facilitate teacher guided, student led learning! And I love to make learning FUN and accessible to all students!!
