TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Currently, I am Academic Interventionist for grades one through five in both reading and math. In previous years I've been a classroom teacher in first and fifth grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a interventionist I work in small group settings using mini-lessons and games to further student understanding in concepts they have no fully grasped in a full classroom environment.
