My 17 years of experience in the educational field includes 2 years teaching pre-kindergarten, 6 years teaching kindergarten, 1 year looping to first grade, 3 years serving as instructional coach for elementary K-5, and 3 years as a reading specialist and instructional coach. Throughout my years of teaching, I also presented at teacher conferences and provided various types of professional development in my district (including Learning Focused Schools and LETRS). This year I am returning to the Kindergarten classroom, and could not be more excited!
Keeping students motivated, engaged, and confident is critical.
