A little about us

My life long passion has always been to teach. Across more than 30 years as an educator, I have been fortunate to encounter seemingly every type of learner and learning style. Through this firsthand experience, both personally and professionally, I’ve refined the necessary tools to help you to work with your students to harness their endless potential, while dealing with the hurdles that may come up along the way. With the help of my own family’s wide array of talents and technical savvy, K5 Teachers exists to help you. I’m profoundly grateful you’re here. Welcome!
