Hi! As an experienced teacher, my approach to education has evolved. In working with my students over the years, one thing became crystal clear very quickly: Education is not a one-size fits all endeavor. All students are different and have differing needs, and this is why taking time to get to know them is so important. Their interests and preferences are all clues for me to find ways to create engaging lessons for them. For over 10 years, I have worked with children from early childhood to sixth grade, and there are things to love about each age/stage. I have an M. Ed and experience in public schools, private schools, and special education. Moreover, I have the following certifications: EC-6th, gifted and talented, English as a second language, and a Montessori credential. Teaching new students is always exciting, and I love it when I am able to work with a child one-on-one. If you have any questions or want to know more, please contact me! I would love to hear from you.
