Read below to learn about her background in teaching.
“I loved playing school with friends or even by myself as a child. I had desks and chairs set up in our shed with my very own chalkboard. I always kept my old schoolbooks to add to my ‘classroom.’ Growing up, my favorite teacher was Mrs. Sidoti, my second grade teacher. She made learning fun and is one of the kindest people I know.
My favorite thing about teaching at Reach Cyber is getting to work with such great teachers and administrators. Everyone is always so welcoming. I love getting to know my students and providing them that same welcoming atmosphere in my classroom. My favorite thing to teach is 3-D shapes; we learn about them and we investigate them. We look at how many sides, whether the object rolls, and the shape of the sides. Then we figure out what makes some shapes roll better than others.”
