TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a public school teacher in a highly respected district in the Atlanta metro area for the past 12 years. I have taught very diverse students, usually all together in one group! After teaching fourth grade for ten years, I am now teaching a computer lab special to 3 and 4 year olds, and loving it! I am also the technology coordinator for my public, special needs school. You never know what changes life will bring!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My aim is to grow every student, whether a student is excelling or struggling. I strive to address many different learning styles and multiple intelligences in my lessons so that I can reach students where they are. I firmly believe that all students have strengths, and the strengths can be used to grow students in weaker areas. I often try to pull in other subject areas as I address specific content. I am a big believer in vocabulary development and have incorporated some of Marzano's ideas into my instruction in recent years. I consider myself laid back and flexible, but quality instruction (and quality instructional tools) are important to me.
