I love being able to be around children while they get to experience and learn new things. They are so excited to learn and I love that I get to help them in that process. I am always happy to go to work knowing that I will get to play, laugh and learn with my students each day.I believe that children learn best when they are given the opportunity to explore subjects through hands on experience in a nurturing environment. I aim to meet the needs of each child by choosing subjects that interest them and will make them excited to learn. I work to create an environment where all students feel comfortable to ask questions, try new things, and speak their minds.
