TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching third grade since 2009, however I have been in the classroom for 15 years. I have taught multiple grade levels between pre-k and 6th. I have also taught general education classes and inclusion classes.

MY TEACHING STYLE

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my masters in Literacy & Cognition and an additional 75 graduate credits in areas that include teaching students with special needs, technology, and assessment.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I LOVE my job. Sometimes, the teacher is the only person that a child might get a smile or a hug from, or even an encouraging word and I always try to remember that. I work hard to make my lessons and activities engaging and sometimes out of the box when compared to normal paper worksheets. I'm always adapting things as I make them. Color, cute graphics, and a different approach can work wonders when teaching a topic that is difficult or boring!
