I have been teaching for 4 years. I taught 1st grade ESL in Texas for the first two years of my teaching career, before moving to Pennsylvania and beginning my journey as a 4th grade teacher!
I strive to really engage my students in learning, by providing a balance of authentic learning activities. With 30 students in my class, I try to use technology as often as possible to ensure student engagement, differentiated resources, and quick assessment/feedback.
The greatest honor I have received is positive feedback from my students and their families!
I have a B.A. in Psychology and an M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Services. I used to work as a counselor and youth educator, before going back to school for my M.A. in Elementary and ESL education.
I have a two-year-old son, and I try to be the best teacher I can be, because I know what it feels like to send your child off all day and hope/trust that they are receiving the best education and care possible!
