TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 4th year teaching fifth grade. I taught English and Social Studies at a middle school for two years, and now I am at an Elementary School teaching all subjects. I love fifth grade! I also did my practicum in third and student teaching in fourth.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style involves inquiry driven hands-on activities and group work.
