TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 27-year veteran teacher, always in GRADE 1! I have taught at a Title 1 school for most of my career. I have been a district liaison teacher, a BTSA support provider, a master teacher for new teachers, and a site lead teacher for many years. I have a reading specialist certificate, and currently, have 18 EL students ( of 24) in my class.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style has developed over the years. I like a structured class, where my students feel respected and free to make choices. I enjoy the "buzz" of learning discussions within the classroom.My favorite time of the day, is when we come to the "reading table" to "show off". Show me what you know! I play music, we chant, we dance, and we laugh. I like to have educational games available for both non-readers and gifted students. I also hold my students accountable for their learning. I try to instill in them the love of LEARNING for a lifetime.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was our district's liaison resource teacher for a year during curriculum adoption. I helped train EVERY elementary teacher in our district. A HUGE honor!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I entered the profession late, after having 3 boys at home and a daughter on the way. My highest honor was earning my teaching credential after 3 1/2 years of night school. The degree was a collaborative effort between my husband, my family, and myself. I later earned my Reading Certificate, after another stint at night school. I LOVE to learn!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As a Title 1 teacher, I have been trained in MANY excellent programs. GLAD, Dataworks, RTI, Guided Reading, AR, are just a few. All professional trainings make us the teachers we are today. We take a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, and combine to create an environment where we laugh and want to learn, for a lifetime!
