Currently, I am teaching Fifth Grade Math in Virginia. This is my 22nd year of teaching. I began teaching Pre-Kindergarten for 3 years and moved to 3rd grade for 3 years. I moved to 4th grade for 11 years and now I am happily teaching Math in 5th Grade.
Hands-on, interactive, technology are just a few of my teaching styles. Every unit that I teach, I find a book to introduce the topic and use many games to re-enforce what I have taught. Small grouping when students need extra help and enrichment activities for students who need higher thinking are also part of my plan.
