As a recently retired Gifted and Talented Intervention Specialist, I have a passion for helping young children discover the joy of learning! Before moving into Gifted education, I taught elementary Math and Science to fourth and fifth grade students. In addition to my education certifications in Elementary Education, Gifted Education, and English as a Second Language, I also have a degree in Biology from Wake Forest University.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
