TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for the past 10+ years, the majority of which have been in 3rd grade. It was my favorite grade as a student and is my favorite grade as a teacher :) I have also taught 2nd and 5th in both the big city and now the 'burbs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style includes a mixture of humor, activity, and high expectations. I love adding in movement and music whenever I can. We use a lot of Whole Brain Teaching strategies as well as Brain Breaks throughout our day to keep things fun!
