TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 4th. During my summers, I have worked as a Teacher Development Coach for the New York City Teaching Fellows in NYC and for Urban Teachers in Dallas. I loved supporting new teachers as they begun their journey into the crazy and fabulous world of education!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in joyful rigor. I've been called a "neat freak" by my students and I am highly organized, but I am no fuss when it comes to classroom decor and material prep. I love activities and materials that are purposeful, clear, and provide a lot of standards based "bang for the buck". I believe in a combination of responsive classroom and no-nonsense nurturing. While I try to run a tight ship most of the time, I also love to get silly and have a laugh with my kiddos.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Just the honor of being a part of this wonderful profession!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate degree was a major in business and a minor in history. 2 years into working in the business world, I went back to school to obtain my teaching certification and master's in childhood ed. I haven't looked back since!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Being a New York City educator was the identity that I prided myself upon throughout the majority of my 20s. In the summer of 2017, my then fiance and I made the decision to move to Dallas, Texas in pursuit of an opportunity that we felt was right for our future. The decision was hard. The transition, a roller coaster of ups and downs. The growth I have experienced as a result, a continuous adventure. I am overwhelmed by the connections that one can find within the walls of a school and the online community of passionate teachers that I have discovered. While I remain nostalgic about my old life back on the east coast, I have learned that home is more than the location in which my family and oldest friends exist. Home as a teacher, is active participation in the calling that is my heart and vocation – education. Thank you for joining me on this journey…
