I have taught for 13 years in a socioeconomically disadvantaged title one elementary school. I have taught 1st,2nd,and 3rd grade.
I use a variety of innovative instructional strategies to meet the diverse needs of my students. I try to create a creative learning environment to stimulate student's curiosity and desire to learn. I like to engage students in hands on activities by using a variety of manipulatives, GLAD, and SDAIE strategies.

I am a mother of two boys. In my free time, I tutor children in grade k-5. I also coordinate a children's ministry at a homeless outreach in which we teach bible lessons to children ages 5-11.
