I wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember! I earned my degree in Early Childhood Education with a Reading Endorsement from the University of Akron. I went on to earn my Master’s degree from Kent State University in Clinical Mental Health. In addition to being a teacher, I am a licensed therapist. I currently work with students in grades K-5. I taught 3rd grade (8 years), kindergarten, and preschool.
I enjoy working with students in all grade levels and have discovered, no matter the student’s grade level they all have something special to offer and great potential to learn. I understand that not all students learn the same way and have found success helping students to understand how they learn best. I think it is important to understand how a student learns before you can effectively teach the student.
