TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught early elementary grades in Ireland and throughout the United States. I am passionate about creating hands-on, age appropriate lessons that allow all learners to excel. I currently teach first grade in Milton, GA and love collaborating with my expanding group of friends on TPT.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that differentiation and flexible grouping are the best ways to meet the needs of young learners. I make sure to include student interests and learning styles in the lessons I teach. I am always open to new ideas, and I am learning to embrace the benefits technology has to offer!
