I have been a teacher for 24 years. I have taught Kindergarten for 20 of the 24 years. Kindergarten is where my heart is! Most of those years have been in the low-income areas of the city. In addition, I was an Intervention Assistant Teacher (IAT) for 3 years, where I worked with grades K-5 looking at data, assessing students needs, and providing interventions for small groups in every classroom.
I enjoy activities that engage my students. I thrive at creating new activities and changing my teaching methods based on daily experiences with my students! My mind is always thinking of new and better ways that I can improve my teaching!
