I am in my fifth year of teaching at a title one school. I have taught in both 4th and 5th grade classrooms.I have taught all types of children including; gifted and talented, learning disability, autism, emotional behavior support, and english language learners.
I enjoy getting to know the students and creating a personal connection to them. I strive to make learning fun and enjoyable for them but make it rigorous and aligned with the state standards. I hold high expectations for all of my students. I believe in the social-emotional aspect of learning and implement many Responsive Classroom approaches in my classroom.
