I have 24 years of classroom experience that includes all kinds of students and situtations; resource to Gifted & Talented; self-contained to departmentalized; 1st grade to 8th grade; urban to rural; Bi-lingual; low econ; and more. This year I will be undergoing a new challenge, I will be teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade in an ALE school. I am excited about this as it will utilize many of my skills and I will be working with some pretty amazing kids.
Whatever it takes!
