TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 3rd grade Literacy for most of my years in teaching (8 years). In addition I've taught 2nd grade Literacy (1 year), was a Reading Interventionist for grades 2-4 (2 years), taught 9th grade World Geography (4 years), and was a College and Career Coach for high school students (2 years). I have my Administrative Certification, but I'm just not ready to step out of the classroom yet!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love teaching on the individual and small group levels as much as possible. I strive to have students talking and interacting in collaborative groups and pairs as much as possible.
