TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 7 years and LOVE it! I am teaching first grade for my second year and am enjoying every minute of it. I have a background in special education and I just received my ESL endorsement. To teach is to live through an adventure day by day!

MY TEACHING STYLE

All students can learn. I enjoy using different methods and strategies to help my learners grow! Some programs I implement in my classroom is Daily 5, Guided Reading Plus, and Daily 3 Math. I also use strategies from "whole brain teaching" aka "power teaching." Brain breaks are also an important part of our first grade experience!
