TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I absolutely love teaching. This is my sixth year at the same elementary school, but I have previously taught middle school science, math, and social studies. I have been the science specialist at a local charter school and have also been an adjunct professor at Warren Wilson College. I hold a Masters degree in Science Education as well as a B.S. degree in Environmental Science. I am certified in middle grades math, science, social studies, and elementary education. I am currently working on my National Board Certification. I worked in the environmental regulatory field for over seven years before becoming a teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I always believe in my heart that each class I have is truly the best. I strive to find new ways to reach them and have found that students in upper elementary and in middle grades strive when learning through movement. Plays and mini skits have worked wonders for my students to retain difficult science, social studies, and math concepts.
