As an elementary teacher in a self-contained classroom, I have the privilege of joining my students on their journey toward becoming life-long learners. My teaching philosophy centers on honest inquiry, open-minded collaboration, and kindness. I have five years of experience teaching diverse learners, including students with learning disabilities and limited English proficiency.
My background is in law, but I have found my passion in teaching. My experience practicing law and teaching English in Japan has made me a resilient, adaptable educator who eagerly seeks out new challenges. I am seeking an elementary teaching position for the 2016-2017 school year.
My hobbies include writing, knitting, playing violin, and photography/videography.
