TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This year marks my fifth year of teaching! All five of my years teaching, I have taught 4th grade Reading (my biggest passion), Writing, Science, and Social Studies. I absolutely LOVE what I do!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal as a teacher is to provide a supportive “classroom family”, where all of my students feel loved, respected, motivated, and empowered to be life-long learners. I am all about getting the kiddos involved in what they are learning, so we do as many hands-on, interactive projects as possible.
