My degree is in Elementary Education but I am certified to teach grades first through eighth grade. I have taught general math, pre-algebra, and algebra. I have taught grades 3 and 4 as well as basic skills for first and second grade for reading and math. I was the 2001 recipient of the Morris County Teacher's award at Mendham Twp. School system. I enjoy working with children and have a talent for teaching children that don't grasp concepts through traditional lecture methods in the classroom. I can make any lesson a hands on lesson. My experience teaching students spans youngsters who struggles and those who rise to the extra challenge. I am prompt, organized, and I am willing to communicate with your child's teacher, upon your approval.
