I have spent my life in the company of the most important people on this Earth - young children! During my more than 20 years teaching, I believe I have learned more than all of the children I have had the honor of influencing put together - the capabilities of a child with the right tools in their hands is unlimited.
I have been a Montessori teacher working with young children since 1991, and in the past few years I have spent time working as a substitute for all ages, from kindergarten through twelfth grade. I have a good working knowledge of most subjects and know that I can find ways to connect students to the material they are struggling with.
