TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have worked in a variety of elementary school settings, including an ELL center, ELL instructional coach, literacy interventionist, and instructional coach. I also teach part-time for some local universities. A few years ago I returned to the classroom to teach 2nd grade as I just missed the kids too much. I now enjoy being a teacher-leader at my school!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to say "I do what works for that group of students" - so, I use a wide range of teaching styles and techniques. I am extremely data driven and am always researching and learning in order to best meet the needs of my students.
