TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my fifth year teaching. I have taught kindergarten and first grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach using a gradual release method. I scaffold children to support their learning, and I instruct so that they will be able to use the skills learned in the classroom in real life situations. My hope is that my students will be intrinsically motivated to succeed.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I studied at the University of Northern Colorado where I earned my BA in Elementary Education with an English as a Second Language Endorsement. I recently graduated from Regis University earning my M.Ed as a Reading Specialist.
