I have strong passion to educate young minds and help them to blossom into well rounded, responsible and successful individuals. Throughout the course of my career, I have had wonderful opportunities to teach diverse groups of students including those with learning disability, those who performed all grade levels and those who were gifted/exceptions. As a result I have become proficient at designing creative and stimulating lesson plans which accommodate multiple intelligence, brings a hand-on approach to teaching and keep students interested and focus.
