TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my fourth year teaching. I taught K for one year and 2nd for 3 years. I am currently a K-2 teacher at a private school that a couple of colleagues and I founded! It's been an exciting year :) You can also check out my blog: www.msdurning.blogspot.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that learning needs to be hands-on, engaging, and meaningful. I support Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences because I truly do believe that nobody can learn the same way.
