TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught literally every grade level K-6 in literacy and mathematics. I've worked with students ranging from the gifted to special needs to English Language Learners and therefore craft lessons that connect with a wide range of ability levels. I love sharing what I'm using with teachers all over the world through TPT.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach literacy through the use of high-quality mentor texts. I firmly believe that if something is important enough to teach, there is an excellent book out there just waiting to be used for that purpose! I model extensively and provide hands-on activities to support my lessons. It is not unusual to find me dancing, singing, or using hand motions to get a concept across. When I teach math, I try to make sure the projects align with the standards but are real-life and a whole lot of fun to use!
