I believe that the love of learning is something that should be taught along with any content. I love to explore new ways of teaching ideas and skills so students feel engaged and excited about what we are doing. I feel strongly about using multiple modes of learning to help students grasp concepts and new ideas. The more ways they experience the information, the better they will understand and retain it.
I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember and I have loved taking on new challenges. I completed my student teaching in an urban school in Washington, DC where I put to the test everything I had learned as a teacher candidate and learned a few new tricks along the way. I went on to teach 3rd grade for 2 years before leaving full time work to be home with my children. As a full time teacher, I taught students at all academic levels and taught an intervention math class for students in danger of failing the CRCT. Besides tutoring, I have run a small preschool for 2 years. I have loved working with children of all different ages and finding ways to help them learn and to be excited about learning.
