Throughout my 15 years of teaching I have taught kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I also taught 2-5 High Potential and Gifted students for three years (which means I incorporate Middle School and higher standards as well). Currently I am a GT program coordinator.
I enjoy incorporating a variety of materials and try to use Problem Based Learning, Inquiry, Socratic Seminar and lots of Differentiation to meet the various learning styles in my classroom.
