I've been teaching elementary education since 1997. I've taught 1st-4th grade. I've taught 3rd grade the longest, 9 years!
I believe in positive behavior management, curriculum researched based lessons, cooperative learning, and learning through engaging activities.

Currently I am running my own tutoring business. I'm staying active in my certification and working with a wide range of students. I love creating materials for the classroom. I believe students learn best in a fun and engaging environment. I'm bringing my experiences and knowledge to other classrooms and I couldn't be more thrilled!
