These cards can be used during literacy centers or even at the Guided Reading table to warm up. These cards give students practice isolating each sound in a word. Great to assist with practice isolating sounds to improve writing.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am beginning my 10th year of teaching though my background is somewhat unique. I taught 1st grade for 2 years at Church Point Elementary and then kindergarten for 3 years at Carencro Heights Elementary. At that time I was fortunate enough to be able to choose to stay at home with my daughter. I then worked part-time doing medical transcription and raising my two daughters for 10 years. This school year is my 5th year back in the classroom and at Ossun Elementary School in Louisiana.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style varies often and typically depends on each group of students I have. Overall I try to balance hands-on activities with activity sheet type of work as the demand for students to be able to complete seat work independently continues to grow. I also try to employ many kinesthetic learning opportunities

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

While on hiatus from teaching I was honored as an APEL Volunteer of the Year award through the Louisiana State Department of Education.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (then known as University of Southern Louisiana) in 1999 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Education and am certified to teach grades K to 4. Prior to returning to the classroom I completed 2 additional educational courses through University of Phoenix to update my teacher certification after being out of the classroom for 10 years.
