I've taught all levels of elementary school over the past 20 years, and have experience with Title I, ELL, Gifted, and SLD students. I spent the first 5 years teaching K-1, then several years in 4th grade, 6th grade math and science (with the occasional history class) for 6 years, and for the past six years, I've been teaching 7th and 8th grade science to gifted students.
I believe in a balanced approach to teaching. Not all students need instruction the exact same way every day. I pride myself on being student centered/driven and hands-on with an emphasis on critical thinking.
