I have eight years experience teaching grades K-4 in a private setting. A few years ago, I resigned from my current position to pursue my masters in education. While completing that goal I worked as a substitute in grades PK-8. I am currently teaching Writing, Science, and Social Studies in 6th Grade.
I refer to my style as "organized chaos." It focus on individualized education through a variety of methods including adaptations of popular philosophies and methods including: Daily 5, CAFE, Book Whisperer, Harry Wong's Pragmatic Classroom, & Whole Brain Learning.
