Teacher Bio: Hello, I am Lindsay Darienzo. I am currently a stay at home mom, who is homeschooling my 2nd grader and preschooler. I have a bachelor of science degree in secondary education with majors in English and History. I have 5 years traditional classroom experience, and 2 years experience as a teacher in a hybrid homeschool academy in Florida. Additionally, I am finishing up my fifth year homeschooling. This is my first year at Friendly Educators. My favorite part of teaching is the light bulb moment - when a student understands a concept (they may have previously struggled with), and you see their face light up in understanding. I have a passion for reading (I love to read in my spare time, especially Historical Fiction), teaching, and Jesus. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. I would love to have your student in my class!
