TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 10 years of teaching experience as a self-contained 4th grade teacher and have co-taught students with special needs. I have training in differentiation, gifted education, and integrating technology.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My students are engaged and rarely stay in their seat for very long. Multiple intelligences as well as readiness levels are considered before teaching a lesson.I love to use center games and activities for review of skills
