I have been teaching for just about 20 years. Most of these years have been in fourth grade, but I looped for 2 years with third grade. I have worked on our district's science curriculum and have written units that go along with NYS Science Standards. I have also worked for a year as a math specialist. With my Special Education background, I have spend years with students blended into our class.
I love using cooperative learning techniques I learned from going to a 3 day Kagan workshop. I use small groups as well as large groups. I try to make leveled assignments to help the many levels of abilities in my students.
Yet to be added
I have a BS in Ed with a concentration in Social Studies, and a Masters IN Special Education.
I am married with a 13 year old daughter. I am blessed in so many ways! I live close to both my brother, sisters and parents- 82 and going strong!, as well as close to my husband's family.
