TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 18 years and am enjoying every minute of it! I have experience with title 1 reading, first grade and third grade. First grade is by far my passion and I'm constantly wowed by their ideas, creativity and successes!!! I LOVE my job and making a difference in students' lives!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Balanced Literacy including: Writer's Workshop, Reader's Workshop, Guided Reading, and Focus Poetry, Math Workstations, Science Investigations, Interactive Notebooks, and Thematic Units. Linking Literature with ALL subjects and thematic units is my passion! I also LOVE teaching hands-on, engaging activities that instill a love of learning. I want learning to be fun and exciting so my students love to come to school. I believe that any student can learn and it's my job to find that one outlet that they can be successful, whether it be writing, reading, math or science.
