I began to pursue my teaching certificate when my children had reached middle school. As a single mom I watched my children grow under the tutelage of some very talented teachers. I wanted to create the same environment so that other children had the same enriching experience. So, at a time when most people are gearing up for slowing down, I started teaching. My first twelve years of teaching were spent in an IB World School in 4th grade. I now teach 2nd grade in the same building. I am a certified teacher trainer who specializes in preparing a transdisciplinary program and teaching through inquiry.
My classroom is inquiry based focusing on a transdisciplinary curriculum.
