TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I worked as a second grade and fifth grade teacher in a public school for almost ten years. I have written curriculum for second grade. After struggling to find the exact materials I wanted for my classroom, I have started to create my own!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to create a student centered classroom. I believe that structure is important for young minds but that fun and creativity play just as large of a role in education. I love to challenge my students and then see them rise to the occasion!
