I've feel like I've been a little bit of everything - a classroom teacher, an instructional coordinator, a classroom teacher again, a literacy coach, a classroom teacher again, and now back to coaching. I have hopes of growing up to be an instructional specialist or teaching new teachers. I've facilitated and presented workshops on a variety of literacy topics, usually about balanced literacy components.
I'm a balanced teacher that uses a balanced approach to instruction, especially in reading, writing, and math. I love interactive notebooks done my own way (no formal notebooking for me). I'm a little OCD with organization and lesson planning.
