My first year, I taught all subjects for fifth grade; however, this past year I taught social studies and science with incorporated reading and writing standards for purpose plus added in TAG strategies for my gifted students. In August I will start my third year teaching 5th grade focusing on reading and writing.
My teaching style involves students highly engaged in a workshop model so I am able to meet with groups and individual students to provide both scaffolds and challenges. Debates and discussions are one of my favorite activities for students because it requires picking a side and defending it. There is so much grow available for students who are challenged, encouraged, and motivated to become the best they can be!
