DFF444B1-6846-42ED-84BD-55E41BFF1217_edited.jpg

I am passionate about education and I love to engage learners in thoughtful instruction and inspire them to express themselves through artistic pursuits.

 

I feel that I have achieved what I can in my current teaching role. I am looking for further professional growth and advancement, which is why I am seeking a new opportunity to apply my knowledge of educational processes and develop my tech skills in a growing industry.

 

My skills as a teacher are highly transferable and I want to pivot my career into the digital education space. I am chasing satisfaction from a new role that helps me develop and expand my skill set as an educator.
