TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I currently teach Fifth Grade. I have taught both general education and special education students in Birth to Three programs, Three to Six programs, Head Start, Four-Year-old Kindergarten and Five-Year-Old Kindergarten and First grade. I have experience teaching at all elementary grade levels. I was an assistant manager at a teacher supply store and a Child Care director.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to provide high interest, experiential activities for my students. I enjoy creative activities that spark imaginations and provide hands - on learning expereiences. I provide an atmosphere where students can learn to inquire, ask questions, and make discoveries.
