TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started my career in teaching in the second grade. I taught second grade for four years. I moved to teaching fourth grade. While teaching 4th grade, I got my Masters in Reading and I currently am an Intervention Specialist. I primarily assist at-risk students in reading. I also provide additional assistance to students in math as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in a balanced literacy classroom. It is so important for literacy to be the main focus of the classroom. Activities need to be student centered and engaging. I feel that we need to model, model, model a skill to students, have interactive lessons, and have students independently practice the skill. I feel then students will truly master a skill. I want my students to truly love to learn! It brings me joy to see students grow and believe in themselves.
