I have been an educator for 12 years. I was a 5th grade teacher for 11 years. I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an English as a Second Language Endorsement and Middle School Endorsement. I love working with children one on one and seeing their growth academically and confidence rise. As a teacher I often times worked in PTA run programs like Homework Help Club, Math Team, and Student Council.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to approach students at their learning styles and abilities. If they are not understanding the concepts or task, it must be presented in a way that they can be successful.
