I have been teaching for 8 years now! My experience ranges from Kindergarten to First Grade!
I have a pretty direct teaching style. I love creating engaging centers, games, and activities using the Common Core Standards. I believe in engaging all modalities to really cement a child's understanding!
I'm honored to work with children each day and awarded with "love" notes, hugs, and funny stories on a regular basis!
I graduated with a degree in Journalism from Indiana University. When I moved back to Florida I kind of fell into teaching through the back door and it's a perfect fit. Who knew??
