I've been teaching in the public school system for 14 years, but my heart has always been in any aspect of education. I absolutely love learning.
I'm an enthusiastic teacher. I get very passionate about my subject matter, so my kids really get to dive into the learning experience with lots of sharing, group projects, and showcasing of accomplishments.
