TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 16th year teaching and I love what I do! I adore teaching kindergarteners and first graders to read, write, and calculate! I have had a blast teaching first grade and expanding on kindergarten skills. I have a master's degree in reading education, bachelors degrees in elementary education and Norwegian, and endorsements in ELL, kindergarten and have a reading credential. I love seeing the growth that happens each year in kindergarten and first grade! For the past 5 years, I have been teaching first grade and learning what first graders can do! I have added both first grade and kindergarten resources to my shop! I hope you find something you could use in my shop.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Fun, hands-on learning through whole group and small group experiences integrating all curriculum in a variety of ways!
