I have been teaching for over 25 years and I love what I do!! I spent 6 years teaching in private schools before moving to the public school system. I have been at my current school for the past 18 years teaching 4th and 5th grades.
I believe that all children can learn, just in different ways and at different rates. Besides teaching academics, one of the most important things I teach my kids is personal responsibility. Children learn best by being engaged and having fun!!
