I have 14 years of experience teaching first grade. My classroom website is http://mrs-brown-citizenship-gr.kirtlandschools.org/modules/groups/integrated_home.phtml?gid=2181777&sessionid=40e116c8afd1384da40b094da8a8bcde
I use a workshop approach in teaching reading, writing and math so that I can more effectively reach all learners at their level.
I have had the honor and privilege of studying writing workshop with Lucy Calkins at Columbia University at their summer institute.
I have degrees in early childhood education and library science, as well as a reading endorsement.
I have provided professional development in my district and others to help teachers establish reading and writing workshops.
