TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had held a variety of teaching positions through the years including self-contained primary school classes as well as Art classes at all grade levels. Currently, I am back in school for a Master's in Counseling and hope to return to the school setting to work in that capacity.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hand-on, creative, engaging, warm.....with attention towards each child's unique strengths.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

NESA (Near East South Asia Council for Overseas Schools) conference nominee for "Maps in Children's Literature."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Current student: MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Union Institute and University Prio: M.ED Framingham State, Framingham, MA AB in Visual Arts, Guilford College, Greensboro, NC

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
