TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my 22nd year of teaching. I spent 10 years teaching special education ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. After 10 years I had the opportunity to transition to general education. Seven of the last 9 years I taught 3rd grade at a Title 1 school in Kitsap County. The past 2 years I have the opportunity to teach 5th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a strongly believe in trying to reach students via their mode of learning. I also believe greatly in knowing what your target is and being very strategic with instruction. We are lucky enough to have Smartboards in every classroom of our school. Students greatly enjoy working on the board. The more engaged they are the more they learn. My special education background helps understand the vast range of abilities found in the classroom from year to year.
