As a teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), I developed tools for all levels of English language learners. Over 50% of my current students are speakers of other languages. I have taught 1st-3rd, as a regular education teacher (currently 3rd). In addition, I have taught Special Education 1st-3rd (EBD & InterRelated). In my "spare" time,I am working to complete my Environmental Education Certification with Environmental Education Alliance (EEA) of Georgia. In addition to teaching, I have created supplemental PowerPoint materials for my students at www.peachebooks.com, for the past five years.
I utilize reading across the curriculum to engage students in the content area topics. I use basic technology tools to share content information with elementary students. I stress foundational skills through meaningful activities and through writing across the curriculum.
