TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 7 years... the past three years have been in first grade and that's where I hope to stay!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love using lots of hands-on manipulatives, teaching in small groups, reading aloud in every subject area, and encouraging curiousity and excitement about learning.
