TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 5th grade teacher, starting my 5th year of teaching. My first 3 years were spent in 4th grade before I made the move to 5th. I teach at a Title 1 school in a Title 1 district so many of my resources will also be available in Spanish, as my bilingual counterpart has graciously translated many items for her classroom and is willing to share them here! I also write ELAR curriculum for my school district...It is such a great way to really learn the standards and think about innovative ways to help students master the expectations.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am all about preparing my kids for college and the real world through interactive, shared learning. You rarely find my students actually sitting at their desks, as I love cooperative, student centered learning. It's just more fun that way!
