I have 19 years of teaching experience with primary children. Most of those years have been with children in 1st and 2nd grades, as well as intensive reading remediation with K-3 students and serving as our school's literacy coach for 4 years. I am currently teaching first grade and LOVING it!
I believe children learn best in classrooms that are highly engaging and cooperative in design, with a focus on multisensory instruction. A balanced literacy program and integrated studies are important to me so children experience a connectedness throughout their day and across the year.
