Bio

Hello! I am a first grade teacher working in Newport News Public Schools. I have my Master's in the Art of Teaching from Christopher Newport University. I have over three years of teaching/tutoring experience, which includes one year as a Teacher Resident. As a teacher resident, I observed, co-taught, and received feedback from a Master Teacher, who was also selected as teacher of the year during our time together. I currently teach first grade, but I have lots of experience with children...

Hello! I am a first grade teacher working in Newport News Public Schools. I have my Master's in the Art of Teaching from Christopher Newport University. I have over three years of teaching/tutoring experience, which includes one year as a Teacher Resident. As a teacher resident, I observed, co-taught, and received feedback from a Master Teacher, who was also selected as teacher of the year during our time together. I currently teach first grade, but I have lots of experience with children from ages 3-14. I was also a varsity soccer player for University of Richmond and Christopher Newport University.

I have always loved working with children, whether it is in a classroom learning how to read or write, or practicing a sport or art skill elsewhere. I have worked children's summer camps for the last seven years, ranging from one with a STEM based curriculum to multi-sports camps, down to specialized soccer camps. Tutoring is a very unique experience that I enjoy. Forming relationships with students one on one is something I take great care to do in my classroom of 15-25 students. With a one on one, or small group tutoring opportunity, it makes forming a relationship with students that much more unique and beneficial to their learning, academically and socially.

I have my Master's in the Art of Teaching with a license to teach Pre-K through sixth grade. I have two years experience teaching first grade, one summer teaching rising second graders, and multiple weeks working with third to fifth graders. I was selected as one of the first Teacher Residents in Newport News Public Schools, to receive an intense year of training under a Master Teacher.

The experience I have teaching first grade has required in depth knowledge of how children learn how to read and write. First grade SOL's and benchmarks require the most growth out of any elementary grade. I have 30+ hours of professional development geared toward reading. I am a member of the Virginia Reading Association which provides me with the most current reading research necessary to teach children how to read.

I have played soccer since the age of five and continue to play today. I was captain of the Christopher Newport University Women's Varsity team my senior year (2016). I have worked multiple soccer camps, working with children ranging from the ages of 3 to 18. I have seen all sets of skills levels, and am able to work with kids on basic soccer skills to fine tuning skills necessary to play in high school and college.

I would love to work with your student to bring them to the desired place, whether it is catching them up, keeping them fresh over the summer, or advancing them in certain areas. I have a very flexible schedule and am willing to work with any sort of life situation you have. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to working with the future generation.

Soccer

Beginning to play soccer at five years old, I have continued to play, train, and teach soccer skills throughout my life. I was recruited to play D1 soccer at University of Richmond, and then transferred to Christopher Newport University my sophomore year. I started all but one game my entire career at CNU and was captain my senior year. I received all-conference recognition two years, and one year was second team all region.
