I love teaching reading and writing skills at the primary level! As a result, I have delved into the research about best practices of literacy instruction, and I started my own afterschool literacy program called Whiz Kids International. I have a bachelor’s degree in French, a credential to teach English as a foreign language from Georgetown University, and a master’s degree from the School of Education at Northwestern University. I have more than 15 years of teaching experience in international primary schools, and am passionate about encouraging and supporting children to believe in their abilities and reach their full potential. When I am not teaching, I spend time with my husband, eight year old daughter and our fluffy, white dog named Teddy (Bear).
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Nonfiction texts are from Reading A-Z.
