I am a childhood education graduate with a New York Initial Certificate in Childhood Education (Grades 1-6). I am currently working as a teacher for a 5th grade classroom. My experiences during my student teaching and at various after-school programs, educational programs and summer camps have afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide range of ages, grades, and cognitive abilities. I have had some wonderful experiences working with children both in and out of the classroom.
Working with children has always been my passion. Throughout my experiences, I have become a passionate, creative, and goal-oriented educator who brings determination to open-minded students so they can have a successful and fun learning experience. I love bringing in my arts and crafts creativity both within my lesson plans and during play. Along with my passion for teaching, I enjoy being a tourist within my own city, volunteering with New York Cares, and snowboarding during winters. I am also a baseball fan and would love to visit every stadium across the country. I love to travel, and I am a very artistic individual that loves to draw, paint, and of course still color with crayons.
