My teaching career spans two continents and 25 years plus in the classroom. For the past 18 years I have taught six grade students in Math and Science. I have also worked with my students in their other subject areas. I have certification in Elementary Education 1- 6. I have also taught some 8th grade Earth science as well as worked with teachers in professional development. My work ethics may be tough but I am fair, patient as well and expect to get results.
