Lightbulb Moment! That's what I live for; I love the moment when students finally GET IT!

I am a full-time elementary teacher with a Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning. In my eight years of classroom experience, I've learned to help my students reach their highest potential by setting high expectations and guiding them to success.

I have unique certifications as a K-12 Reading Specialist and ESL instructor, even serving as the ESL teacher to 18 of my 23 homeroom students. My experience as a technology teacher and lover of STEM help to set me apart and bring a diverse learning curve to each subject area. Let's work together to succeed!

I love to teach math and have embraced the Common Core approach to understanding math concepts. I believe that students need a balance of strategies that fit their understanding and experiencing math success.

As a former Technology and STEM teacher, I enjoy looking at the world a little differently, and helping students to see the magic in the world around them. We'll ask the tough questions and dig deeper to understand the concepts.

I teach in a school with a high ESL population and naturally cater all of my lessons to meet the needs of langauge learners. What's good for one learner is probably good for another, so I build lessons rich in vocabulary and understanding.

I believe in student-directed learning and want to help YOU reach YOUR goals! Contact me to day and let's work together to help you SUCCEED!

Since the inception of Common Core, I have utilized the unique, concept-driven instructional strategies that the Common Core standards have embraced in math and reading. I believe that students' understanding of the "why" behind the process in the main target of Common Core strategies, and I believe in teaching a balance of concepts and strategies to help each student be successful.
