I am passionate about helping students dramatically improve their academic performance. Students deserve a curriculum that focuses on their individual needs, passions, and are applicable to real life. Through thoughtful integration all students’ needs can be met. Goal setting allows students to be an active advocate in their learning. Allowing students to be active in their educational goals and achievements will encourage students to become life long lovers of learning.
I am a credentialed teacher who has worked in a private and private school settings for the past eight years. My teaching credentials are in multiple subject elementary school and biological sciences. I have attended a variety of trainings throughout my professional career. In writing, I have trained and applied the Step-Up to Writing program and Lucy Caulkins in my classroom. For mathematics, I have training in Everyday Math as well as CPM. While transitioning to the Common Core curriculum, I have increase my instruction in math to concrete explanations and activities as opposed to memorization of basic algorithms. My true passion lies in science where I enjoy reinforcing scientific concepts through written communication.
