I was a self-contained Gifted and Talented teacher for 26 years. In that capacity I taught 3rd, 4th, 4/5 combination and 5th. I was also an Arts Integration Specialist for K-5 for a year. I have been teaching music experience for K-5 for the past three years. I see I have not updated this for two years. I have been teaching a GATE cluster third grade for the past two years. I will be teaching at a new school (third grade) this upcoming school year. ENDORSEMENTS: K-8 Gifted SEI
I love integration! I enjoy centers to help with this integration. I also enjoy helping students explore through research and projects.
