TEACHING EXPERIENCE

4 Years in 1st Grade 3 Years in 2nd Grade 3 Years in 3rd Grade 10 Years as Reading Academic Coach serving Kindergarten through 5th Grade 2 Years as Troup County Academic Coach

MY TEACHING STYLE

All children deserve to be taught in a way that helps them reach their highest potential. Keeping their uniqueness in mind when planning activities and lessons, I present the content in many different ways so that all students can participate in learning. My classroom is an active and lively place! I like to hear the chatter of learning. By allowing them to work together, have lots of discussions, and share ideas, I am facilitating a risk-free classroom where they learn from each other. They take ownership and responsibility for their own learning when they feel that what they have to contribute is important and meaningful.
