I worked in preschool for 2 years, then as an elementary school aide and tutor for 2 years. I taught language arts in 5-8 grades for several years. I am in my 11th year of teaching college level education classes, and I work as a volunteer interventionist and reading group leader in 1st grade (last year in kindergarten).
I like to let the students direct their own learning as much as possible. I give as many choices as possible while still providing structure and modeling for them to follow. I try to engage them in active, fun learning activities that also help us meet the goals I've set.
