Philosophy Statement
Work Samples

Hello, and welcome to my online portfolio. Here you will find my teaching philosophy, education, experience, relevant prior career highlights, work samples, and personal information.

In 2018, I received a Master of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education, from Rhode Island College. I look forward to a teaching career, bringing years of experience as an industrial designer, creative problem solver, artist and musician to my classroom.

I believe that my foundation in the STEAM disciplines will enhance my work as an elementary educator, and help achieve my mission to inspire students with joy for exploration and discovery every day, and the lifelong love of learning.
