This is my eighth year in the classroom. I have taught first, second, and third grade. I also have experience working with fourth and fifth grade. I am currently teaching in a third grade classroom.
I believe that a hands-on approach works best. I love to give students time to work through problems on their own or with small group guidance. I teach very little lecture style class and keep those to a short 15 minute mini-lesson. The bulk of my teaching occurs in small group instruction and inquiry based learning.
I continually score high marks on my evaluations. I have also been asked to be in leadership positions within my school that normally are not fulfilled by teachers at my experience level.
I have a 4 year degree from a state school in my state.
I really love teaching and coming up with new ways to help my students. I hope that you can use some of my products for your students!
