I have been teaching for over 10 years in multiple different grade levels from Preschool to 8th grade English Language Arts. This is my 6th year looping with 5th and 6th grade in a very diverse setting and I love it! I have my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction Design and incorporate the intensive Common Core Curriculum into each lesson daily.
With extensive practice in Readers and Writers Workshops I am very student centered. I believe in creating learning opportunities for students that are self driven and connect to their everyday lives.
