TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Thanks for stopping by! I am certified early childhood-sixth grade and have taught both third and fifth grade. Most of my teaching experience has been with language arts, which you will see reflected in my store.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My goal as a reading teacher is to give students opportunities to love reading. The best days at school are the days when students finish their new favorite book or when I catch them sneakily reading when they are supposed to be doing something else. In order to foster a love of reading I implement reader's workshop, more specifically I follow Fountas and Pinnell's approach. Students spend large parts of the Language Arts block reading and writing about their reading. Many of my products are meant to be used for test preparation. This is because most of the everyday work my students do is open-ended and recorded in notebooks and journals. I have tried to create products that make test prep more enjoyable and engaging while still being effective.
