TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 3rd grade for four years and am currently a Literacy Specialist for grades 2-5 in Western New York.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to establlish as much of a student-centered learning environment as I can. I model reading strategies for my students, and act as a coach to assist them in learning how to utilize the strategies independently.
