This is my fourteenth year of teaching elementary school. I currently teach third grade math and science. I've taught the following grades: fifth (for two years), second (for two years), and most recently third grade (this is my 10th year). Prior to teaching in the public school system, I taught in a private school setting. I am a Florida Certified Teacher (K-6 and ESOL).
I believe in making learning engaging and fun! I employ various teaching methods to accomplish this, including brain-based learning, cooperative learning and music in the classroom.
