Experience: 5 years
I am currently a second grade teacher with the Dallas ISD. I teach English Language Arts andmath to second graders. I love what I do. I love to develop hands on lessons with effective strategies to help my students grow and become independent learners. I have been a tutor for kindergarten through fourth grade. I like to help my students develop ways to become independent thinkers.

I still feel like a tourist here, so finding all the museums and landmarks that I have always heard about is awesome. I am a part of lovely organization that does community service. I am a novice do it yourself person. At this time, I am trying to become a "grill master," let's just say I have some homework in this area.
Thank you for taking the time to read my information and hopefully I can help your child reach new heights.
