Before I taught first grade, I taught middle school (5th-8th grade) English literature in Houston. I have also tutored some awesome families in English, vocabulary, reading, writing, grammar, and ESOL. Before becoming a teacher, I began a Masters in School Guidance Counseling so I am very familiar with the college application process, including the value of having a strong college essay prepared. I can edit and proofread important documents like essays. I am also a volunteer assistant editor of a magazine that supports the community with disabilities for urban youth.
I also have experience as a nanny. I recently left a great family in Cherry Hill, with two children. I had been working for them part-time for just over a year.
