I am a certified PK-6 Virginia teacher with additional certifications and specialization in Gifted and Talented Advanced Academics and the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). I have over 15 years of experience teaching for schools, homeschool groups, and families around the world. I believe all children have an inherent love for learning, and, because I love math and believe math literacy is an essential skill that all children can learn to the highest levels, I have specialized in math and STEAM-related education. 
No homework
No materials required, but learners may benefit from having a notebook and pencil or a whiteboard with markers.
No formal assessments, but classes conclude with an informal group assessment that informs further instruction.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
