TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 5 years, 3 of them as the general educator in a collaborative classroom. I have spent one year in 5th grade, one year as a 4th grade math teacher, one year as a Math Resource teacher, and two years in 2nd grade. Second grade is my absolute favorite!!!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to teach in small groups. I also incorporate lots of hands on activities in my lessons as well several projects every year.
