After teaching a myriad of ages abroad in Spain and Mexico I've recently moved to North Carolina. I've spent the last few years here teaching some fabulous 4th graders at a STEM school and couldn't be happier. We have a main focus on ENGINEERING where students are constantly creating!
Smile. Not everyday goes as planned, but everyday can be filled with laughter and learning. It's all how you roll with it. Teaching is all about creating engaging activities that help scaffold student learning where they're at while giving them enough freedom to take charge as learners.
Grateful for the opportunity to change lives and to embrace all the little hearts that walk through my classroom door. As many of you have said before, isn't that enough? :)
I went to college for education and Spanish. Recently I've added my TEFL certification because I've found teaching English to be so rewarding!
