I have taught 4th grade for 4 years in New York. I started in a New York City city, and now teach on Long Island. This year will be my first year in 3rd grade. I have a Master's in Special Education, and I was an English major as well. I'm currently working on receiving a Master's in Literacy.
The best way I would describe my teaching style is that I am firm, but flexible. My students understand that our classroom is an environment where they feel safe and have the right to receive the best education possible. Each students' needs are being met and I take each student into account when planning my lessons and assessments. I am very focused on differentiating all my materials when applicable and making writing an approachable process for all students. Students know me as, "The teacher who loves the beach" because every year my classroom theme is nautical. I grew up going to the beach every summer, and I wanted to incorporate that love of the water and all things nautical into my classroom. I also believe it creates a serene and relaxing environment for my students.
