I have taught kindergarten, pre-first, first, and second grades. I've also taught special education students, grades K-6. I have worked with students and educators to facilitate the use of technology. As a district trainer, I have conducted workshops for math concepts, reading (4 Blocks model, Harcourt) and writing (Step Up to Writing, Six Traits.) Currently, I am immersing myself into developing teaching materials that address the Common Core.
