I have been teaching for 18 years and have my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught preschool through third grade.
I'm passionate about teaching and encouraging children to be the best they can be in life. I feel that teaching is an honor and I always want to have that spark in me that inspires a child.
