TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching struggling students since 1999. I have worked with students with varying disabilities and needs. RTI has been a major influence in professional growth as a teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that all students are able to succeed no matter what level they are achieving. I try to break items down so that students can learn in a systematic way into mastery.
