Over the course of my career, I have taught babies, toddlers, preschool, kindergarten, first grade, third grade, fifth grade, college, and graduate school. Since 2011, I have taught fifth grade. Fifth grade is the BEST!
I love project-based learning and enjoy implementing a workshop model.
I have served as a team leader for several years. In addition, I have been a literacy coach.
