"I am an experienced and credentialed teacher and school principal who recently relocated to Dallas, TX from the San Francisco Bay Area. I have teaching and tutoring experience in grades K-8. I believe in meeting each child where there are at, building upon their strengths and interests, and working closely with their teachers to make as much progress as possible.

I love when you can see the "light bulb" moment for students - that point at which they truly understand. I know that study skills, organization, and executive functioning skills are critical for success so I always build work in those areas into my lessons.

I have experience teaching, and coaching teachers, in math instruction for grades K-8. I use a lot of hands on manipulatives and meaningful, relatable problems for students when they are working on math concepts. I also have a degree from Stanford University.

I have an undergraduate degree in Human Biology and experience teaching science at the elementary and middle school level.

I have been trained in multiple reading methods and assessments (Fountas/Pinnell , DRA, etc). I spent three years as a second grade teacher which was heavily focused on literacy, as well as teaching an after school literacy intervention program. I have also taught 6th grade English/Social Studies.

I have experience teaching many students with ADHD across all grades. I believe in understanding each child's unique abilities and challenges and tailoring instruction and experiences to bring out the best in each student.

I hold kids accountable for their learning, while also making in fun and meaningful." less...
