Currently in my 4th year as a 4th grade English language arts and social studies teacher in Texas. I have previously taught art and music to K-5th grade students, served as an classroom interventionist, special education aide, and substitute. I have also taught children's theater classes to K-8th grade students.
Heavily influenced by the teachings of Ron Clark and the teachers of RCA Academy. Emphasis on a balance between engagement and curriculum. Energetic, lots of music, movement, collaboration, and of course lots of laughter.
