TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a certified Early Childhood Educator with 24 years of experience teaching grades K-4 with a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style includes a multi-sensory approach and a hands-on method. I like to use the method of I Do/We Do/You Do in my teaching style. Teaching in small groups and individually is also a large part of my instruction throughout the day. I also use peer teaching as another method for student learning. My teaching style includes music and movement, charts, and differentiated instruction. I use a variety of ongoing assessments to monitor learning. Students help celebrate each others' accomplishments with class cheers as well. My teaching style also includes re-teaching and enrichment.
