TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an elementary teacher for over 30 years! I have taught grades 2, 3, and 4, but have spent most of my years in 3rd and 4th. I currently teach a 3rd grade gifted/high achiever class, but I have had experience with ESE and ESOL students over the years. Please follow me at http://beachsandplans.blogspot.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

My lessons and classroom activities provide students with opportunities to think, create, collaborate, and assess their own learning. My goal is to create independent, life-long learners and thinkers!
