TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Music K-5, 3rd Grade self-contained/departmentalized, 4th grade self-contained/departmentalized. I have also been a lead teacher for my grade level while teaching 3rd grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer keeping things simple, but also rigorous. I expect all of my kids to do their very best and want nothing less. I teach great students and love seeing them grow throughout the year. I hope these small tools that I have created on here will help you to see your children do the same.
