I have 20 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 14 years teaching 2nd grade in a public school. Several of those classes were a special education inclusion setting. I am currently teaching Title I reading and math at a 2nd grade level.
This year all of my teaching is done in a small group setting. My students have been referred to me for services through the Response to Intervention process.
