I’ve taught for 16 years and have truly enjoyed teaching students from kindergarten through sixth grade. I have also supported schools as a Program Improvement Specialist and a Literacy Coach. These positions have given me the opportunity to share my ideas with teachers throughout my school district. My current position allows me the opportunity to teach first grade for a portion of the day and support teachers the rest of the day.
I try my best to keep my students highly engaged. Workshop time is such a powerful tool which allows my students the opportunity to learn through teaching one another, as well as practice their cooperative learning skills. During this time, I am able to do small group instruction, while students are engaged in practicing academic skills at exciting learning stations.
I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Spanish and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.
I enjoy creating quality products to help make the teaching experience more enjoyable and less time consuming! Bannner Fonts and Graphics By: Lovin Lit, Hello Fonts, Graphics Factory, Creative Clips, Educlips
