My goal as an educator is to collaborate with parents and students to cultivate a love for learning, provide each child with a nurturing, moral environment where children feel physically safe, emotionally secure, and academically challenged.
My teaching experience includes kindergarten, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, sixth grade, English literacy for bilingual kindergarten, and high dosage tutoring for K-5th grade.
