I have been in the educational field for the past 20 years. I have taught many different grade levels and subjects. I love to work with all students and to see that “light” shine when they master a specific skill. Presently, I teach educational technology to grades K-5. I integrate all areas of the curriculum and work closely with the classroom teacher to enhance or remediate projects. Whether it’s a project on the American Revolution, learning about the human body, or reviewing an algebra concept – I use technology as a key component. My goal is to nurture and teach my students while preparing them to become college ready.
