ExperienceI love teaching. I have been in secondary (grades 6-12) education for over a decade and enjoy working with students who are motivated but struggling. I have a unique approach to instruction, using hands-on, student-centered techniques. I use an "I do," "we do," "you do" model.

HobbiesI work well with students in one-on-one or small-group situations. I believe in authentic learning and engaging instruction. I also believe that students who understand and master the basics can excel. I believe all students can learn.
I have a good sense of humor and enjoy working with adolescents.
I have children, so I bring a parent's perspective to my interactions with students.
