TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! My name is Jessica, affectionately known as Jivey! I have 10 years of classroom teaching experience in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I am currently creating curriculum and engaging lessons for teachers full time. I have delivered professional development since 2010 (while still in the classroom, as well as summers, and now), and I love that I can devote more time to this as well! I deliver sessions on utilizing mentor texts and mentor sentences in the classroom. Although I miss being in the classroom, my passion has always been to help instill best practices in other teachers, and I'm so lucky to be able to call my dream, "a job." It is humbling, yet exciting, to know I am affecting classrooms worldwide!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in the workshop model and using small groups to most effectively reach all learners. These also are the best methods for a balanced literacy approach.
