TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I have taught 5th grade science and language arts, middle school literacy and 7th and 8th grade science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very enthusiastic teacher who tries to incorporate technology and interactive lessons into my plans. I like a lot of hands-on activity and active discussion with my students. I want to inspire and encourage students to be curious, I love creating my own materials that are tailored to the standards that I teach. Working with young people is awesome!
