I'm a NJ certified K-8 teacher. I have taught computers, mainly MS Office for four years, and have experience teaching all subjects as a K-12 substitute teacher as well. I have three children of my own who are all honor students. I was born and raised in Quebec so I am bilingual English/French. I always come prepared with a detailed lesson plan.
