I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I have written curriculum for two districts in all of the content areas. Teaching children and training other professionals is my true passion.
I believe that students need a safe learning environment where they are valued as individuals and understand that success is not always measured in percentiles or mastery. I use my students' curiosities and interests to guide them to think, question, research, share, create, and inspire others. My students will become the leaders for our classroom and the leaders of their own education.
