TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd and many of my products are ways to enrich the curriculum. If I can't find exactly what I'm looking for I use my knowledge of the standards, developmental readiness, and practicality to create my products. I am currently not teaching in the standard school setting- I am taking some time to be home with my 3 boys. So now some of my products reflect what I do with my pre-school aged boys.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am very hands on and visual. I believe that is what younger student's need in order to really process what they are learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

*Most Helpful and Resourceful on my Kindergarten team. *Used as a model Kindergarten classroom for visitors and district administrators to walk through *Highest achieving classes for the majority of the years I've taught in public school

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY
