TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 14 years. I have a wide range of experience including 1st -4th grade, 7th and 8th grade, special education, and physical education. I enjoy each age level, but I currently teach a 4th grade homeroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer to have my students up and moving around. I have developed a series of games to use while teaching reading. I call this Readercise. I have also developed an active way to teach math review, and I like to call this mAthletics. I feel that students are more engaged and willing to learn when they don't have to sit still.
