I have been teaching Kindergarten for four years! I have received my Reading Endorsement and English Speakers of Other Languages Endorsement as well. I am also working on completing my masters in Educational Leadership. In addition I have been working on Common Core implementation for my school for two years
I believe in student centered learning where the students are engaged in hands on activities. In my classroom I like to disguise learning as fun so we play lots of games! I believe that I am best able to meet the needs of my learners during center time. For most of the day I have my students work in differentiated centers either individually or in small groups. Students are then given the opportunity to work within their zone of proximal development while I can pull groups of students to work on specific skills.
I have a degree in Elementary Education, an ESOL endorsement, and a Reading endorsement. I am currently enrolled in a masters program for Educational Leadership
