About Carrie

I have always had a love of learning, which grew into a love for teaching! While in college, I realized that elementary school was where I would be the best fit. I always strive to have the best understanding of each student, which allows me to determine their strengths and weaknesses. All students do not learn the same way, and learning this about each child is very important to me.
I have spent over 13 years in the private and public school systems. I have taught all grades from pre-K to 6th and enjoy all of these. I have also tutored and taught summer classes as well.

Reading and Spelling have always been my favorite subjects. I spend at least a quarter of each day reading. Even as I went back to school to earn my nursing degree, I was looked to by my own classmates to proofread papers!

I hold a degree in Elementary Ed focused on pre-k and k-6. I also specialized in math. I have 10+ years experience in all fields of elementary education.

I pride myself on treating each student as an individual. I focus on learning the needs of students, and also finding their best style of learning. I want all students to feel comfortable with me, and encourage openness when having difficulty with their work.
