I am in my 22nd year of teaching and I love teaching! I have taught grades 1-6 but my heart is in primary. Teaching kids to write is my specialty!
My teaching style allows students to be independent learners. I try to give them the tools they will need to be successful. Learning is personal and each student requires different strategies and skills to succeed. I try to incorporate whole class, independent and collaborate (cooperative small group) instruction. I also use auditory, visual and kinesthetic methods so that each type of learner will be able to learn.
20 year teaching award MEd. Curriculum and Instruction: Writing Development I've been asked to present on such topics as: The Write Traits Assessment in Literacy Using Technology in the Classroom Mind Up! (A Sharing Session on how Mindup has guided my teaching and created happier learners)
I received my BEd. (elementary education) and my MEd. in Curriculum and Instruction (writing development). I have presented numerous workshops on topics such as The 6 Write Traits, Assessment Strategies, Social Learning and Happiness in School.
I teach at a Demonstration school which means that I open my classroom up to local school districts and districts throughout the world monthly to demonstrate best practices in instruction and assessment in literacy.
