Education is important for every student no matter what their background is. An education will open doors and bring new opportunities throughout your life. I strongly believe that it's essential to master all elementary math and reading skills in order to continue to grow and become a life long learner. For me Education never stops. As an adult I am continuously learning. I hope to bring the joy to students as they learn and to help them to become lifelong readers and mathematicians.
I started my education journey at IUPUI, where I obtained my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a reading endorsement in 2012. After working for a few years as an intervention assistant and a head classroom teacher I chose to continue my education at Western Governors University. In 2019 I finished my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Finally, in September of 2019 I added a certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) from International Open Academy.
I thoroughly enjoy children and helping them to learn the skills that they need in order to succeed. As an educator seeing a student finally understand a concept is a huge reward. I have over 5 years of educational experience as a lead teacher, intervention assistant, and online ESL independent contractor. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know each one of my students and make it my goal to meet the students where they are at in their individual math and reading skills.

I have several hobbies. When I'm not teaching I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family. My husband, 2 young daughters, and I love to spend time outdoors. I also enjoy reading and listening to books of different genres. I enjoy being a part of book clubs, which allows me to discuss the material I'm reading.
