I have been in education for over 14 years. I am currently certified in Early Childhood, Elementary, and Middle school education. I have a Reading Endorsement as well as a Teacher Leader Endorsement. I enjoy teaching reading and science. During my time in education, I have been afforded many opportunities to learn and teach not only students but my colleagues as well. I have learned and implemented various instructional strategies that emphasize best practices and meet the needs of various learning styles and backgrounds of a diverse group of students. I am always learning in an effort to perfect my craft and ensure that I am giving students the best instruction possible. I am very passionate about teaching and my goal is that every student I encounter, reaches their fullest academic achievement and becomes a lifelong learner.
