I have taught for 33 years in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. The last 10 years I was a 5th grade teacher with 34 students in my class. I am currently a Program Coordinator for my school. It is my responsibility to help my teachers find and implement Common Core Standards in Language Arts, and Math. This year our journey is to begin implementation of the NGSS science standards.
My style is to make sure my students become problem solvers. I enjoy the hands on approach to teaching and learning.
