I taught 2nd grade for one year before moving down to 1st grade last year. I taught first grade and reading recovery last year while going through UALR's reading recovery training program. This will be my third year to teach and my second year in first grade.
I prefer to teach with as many hands-on activities as possible. I've received training in comprehensive literacy as well as reading recovery so I consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable about literacy instruction in the early elementary classrooms.
I am a certified reading recovery teacher.
