TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am starting my fifteenth year in education! Whew! I started my career teaching adult basic education to teenage mothers at an Early Head Start. From there, I taught 4th and 5th grades at a private school for six years. I then moved out of the classroom into an instructional coaching role. I helped both new and veteran teachers integrate research-based best practices into their instruction. While I loved working with teachers, my heart remained with the students. After I had my own children, I wanted my "teacher hours" back, so I went back into the classroom in a public school teaching 3rd grade for a number of years. This year, I'm mixing it up a little and trying out 2nd! Wish me luck!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm fortunate to have received some extraordinary professional development throughout the years. I teach Readers' and Writers' Workshop using Columbia University's Teachers College research and strategies. I also use arts integration through tableau and visual arts. I like to think I'm a bit unconventional, and I love to try new things. I believe children learn best when they construct their own knowledge about the world around them within their own learning styles.
