My name is Elisa, and I have an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in reading and English as a second language. My experiences in education have led me to teach early childhood up until 8th grade. Also, I have taught fifth and third grade at a National Blue Ribbon School, and I strive to stay up to date on the best educational practices. I got trained by some of the industry's top rated professionals such as Lucy Calkins, Jeff Anderson, and Dr. Nikki Newton. Also, I integrate Dr. Carol Dewek's growth mindset research into my instruction.
I hope that we can work together to help you achieve your fullest potential!
