My inspiration to become a teacher stems from the impact that teachers had in my life. I found that I was most successful when teachers treated me as an individual and took an interest in my life and learning style. This philosophy guides me as a teacher. I provide individualized instruction based on a student's strengths and needs. There is no one size fits all approach in education. I have extensive experience teaching science to special education students. I have found that the strategies that make these students successful work for all students. As a classroom teacher, I have worked with students with ranging abilities from kindergarten to twelfth grade. I also have extensive experience working with students on organization, writing skills, and essay development. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges of teaching and watching students thrive and grow as learners.
