My experience in the classroom with students in elementary school began 18 years ago. I have worked with students from age 4 to 10. Most of my experience has been with students with special needs and students that receive intervention services in the areas of reading and math.
I enjoy getting to know each student's strengths and weaknesses and tailoring songs and activities to help them improve specific skills. Playing games and singing are such great ways to re-enforce skills. I believe students need to be engaged and active learners.
Many of my songs and ideas have been accepted and published by Mailbox Publication. At the school I am assigned many of my songs and games are used in the classrooms. I am currently putting together songs for our school-wide PBIS program.
