TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 14 years of experience in primary and middle school classrooms as both a teacher and an Instructional Coach.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Children learn by doing! Less teacher, more student! I believe in teaching kids to think, not just practice answering questions. When we teach them to think they can tackle anything we put in front of them.
