TEACHING EXPERIENCE

7th grade Language Arts for 8 years 6-8 summer school for 6 years K-12 Substitute experience prior to teaching

MY TEACHING STYLE

I can't say that I have one 'teaching style' because I use such a variety of styles and strategies to try to reach all of the different learning styles and ability levels that are in my classroom. I do, however, firmly believe in the "I do it, we do it, you do it" format of scaffolding so that students can hopefully achieve full mastery of a skill.
