Coaching Literacy Coach - 2 years Interventions Academic Interventionist: 1 year Classroom Teaching 5th Grade: 4 years 4th Grade: 2 Years
I am a student-centered educator that focuses on literacy instruction. My goal is to ensure the highest quality of instruction possible, based on the most effective research-based strategies available. This cannot be achieved without an emphasis on student engagement. I believe in order to provide students with the education they deserve we must first create an exciting and challenging environment full of authentic and engaging tasks.
