Hello Fellow Teachers! I'm Molly. I am a teacher, but I also have a passion for creating fun and engaging teaching materials. I started teaching in 1993, which means I have been in education for approximately 30 years. Over the years I have been in many different positions, which are listed below.
• 3rd Grade Teacher
• 4th Grade Teacher
• Upper Elementary Early Intervention Teacher for Reading and Math
• Inclusion Special Education Teacher
• Title 1 Math Teacher
• Reading Intervention
• STEM Teacher for 3rd - 5th Grades
I have taught in 5 different elementary schools. Each one of those schools helped me grow as an educator. I learned a great deal from the administration and the dedicated teachers on my teams.
►In My Classroom
It is my goal to maximize learning in the classroom. I try to consider the learning styles of my students when planning. Because of that, I adjust my teaching style accordingly. I would say I implement a balance of instructional methods. You may find me giving direct instruction, while also incorporating hands-on interactive lessons. You would find students in my classroom talking and interacting. There would be a combination of whole group, small group, and partner activities. You would find remediation and enrichment. I strive to keep my lessons fun and engaging while helping students master the standards.
I have been nominated for teacher of the year several times over my career. In addition, I have received monthly recognition many times.
