TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been in the classroom for 10+ years as a full time teacher along with multiple years of substitute teaching. Most of my career has been with 5th and 6th grade, but I also have experience with K,1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe students need to do science to understand science. This subject area should be hands on. I love to lead and guide my students while they ask questions, explore, design and carry out investigations.
