As an experienced teacher, I am seeking a position that will allow me to continue to develop unique and fascinating teaching practices that create interest and the desire to learn in my students.An ideal teaching position would require a resourceful, creative, and positive team player who has the willingness and ability to work toward the improvement of my class, my school, and my district.

As grade level chair from 2007-2009, I shared concerns and questions from the fourth grade team with the principal, coordinated field trips and other extra curricular activities, and acted as mentor to new teachers.
