I have 24 years of teaching experience. I taught 1st grade in a public school for 2 years. Then, due to relocating, I taught 3rd grade in a private school for 4 years. I have spent the last 17 years teaching 2nd grade, 2nd grade inclusion, and 2nd grade Title I reading and math in a public school. I am currently loving being back in first grade.
My teaching style provides rigorous content through fun and engaging activities! I love small groups and centers. I integrate technology where I can.
