TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have ten years of classroom experience in grades 2 through 5. I have taught fourth grade for the past five years and love it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I create fun hands on differentiated lessons for my students. My classroom is a safe, nurturing environment in which students can learn through exploration and risk taking. My goal each year is to instill a love of learning in each student. I learn something new everyday from my students and colleagues.
