I believe in Einstein's adage that states " Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think."  Since 2008, I have held teaching positions in the Yonkers School District. My experience, has been in teaching Kindergarten through Fifth grade.  Additionally, I have taught Literacy and English As A Second Language.

I am a hands on educator who has implemented learning   centers in all academic areas to tap into students individual interests and learning styles.  All areas of the arts are also integrated into these learning centers. I get greagt satisfaction in seeing the academic,  emotional and social growth that students achieve over the academic year.
