TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught 2nd grade for three years and this year I will be teaching a small math pull-out group in 3rd grade and will be the professional development teacher at my school! I am so excited about the new adventures I will be having :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

I work hard to keep an organized, motivating, and inviting classroom for my students. I provide them with as many hands-on learning opportunities as possible!
