I have been teaching at a wonderful school in Sarasota FL since 2006. We are a Title 1 school with about 70% of our students speaking a language other than English at home. Although it can be challenging, I work with a wonderful group of students and brilliant colleagues. I was lucky enough to get involved with ActivBoard training soon after our district implemented them in our classrooms, and I became a certified ActivBoard trainer several years ago. I was able to train with some wonderful Promethean trainers and learned all sorts of tricks that made me want to stay home all day and play on ActivInspire! Instead, I have been able to put the training to use in my classroom and my students love interacting with the flipcharts. Technology is a wonderful tool, and I hope to continue to use it to help engage my students!
I'm slightly goofy but run a tight ship. I believe students learn best when they feel safe and loved, and I do my best to make sure they feel that way in our classroom. I also believe that children need time to practice what we teach them, and part of my job is to coach them as they practice the skills and strategies they need to become life-long learners.
