I received my BA in Business Administration and Finance. After I graduated I enrolled in an alternative licensure program to receive my teaching certificate. I have been teaching for five years. The first four years of my teaching career were in an elementary setting. I taught all subject areas in a fourth grade class. I am also TESOL endorsed (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages). I am currently teaching 6th grade math. As a math teacher I look for ways to connect with students and find ways to motivate them to help students reach academic success. I look forward to applying what I have learned from this training in my classroom.
