TEACHING EXPERIENCE

9th year teaching K-6 Certified ESOL Endorsed

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is centered around my students. Of course I have lesson plans and goals for my students to reach. :) However, I love teachable moments! I love when my students come up with deep questions for us to research together. I always encourage them to think for themselves! "When kids learn that their own questions have value, their confidence soars, and their thinking grows exponentially." - Tanny McGregor

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm honored to teach wonderful kiddos every day. I'm honored to know that other teachers find my work helpful in their classrooms! :)
