Naomi has been teaching at the primary level for over 10 years. She has acquired an ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement, a Gifted and Talented endorsement, and an Early Childhood Education endorsement as well. She prides herself on the relationships she builds with kids and their parents/guardians, being culturally responsive, having high expectations for all of her students, and being a learner always. She doesn’t ever teach the same thing the exact same way the following year. Naomi always strives to improve her practice. She uses a combination of technology, student focused teaching, and engaging strategies to yield incredible results from her students. When she isn’t teaching, she spends time with her family, writes curriculum for elementary educators and advocates for racial justice.
