I have been teaching in the public school system for 16 years. I began teaching as the Reading EIP teacher, but later entered my own 3rd grade homeroom.
I use various forms of instruction. I hold alot of discussions in class between the students and myself as a form of informal instruction. I plan many cooperative learning activities and give my students choices when asking them to complete assignments. Although I do have blocks of direct instruction, much of my time is used as a facilitator in student learning.
none, as of yet :)
I currently hold an Ed.S degree in Early Childhood Curriculum and Instuction. I also have my gifted endorsement.
In my "off" time, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 15 years and my 2 wonderful children. Maggie is 9 and Benjamin is 12.
