TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 16 years. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and third grade. After 14 years of classroom teaching, I accepted a position as an instructional coach. I worked with teachers in grades K-5 on implementing best practices for math, ELA, and technology, by modeling lessons, co-teaching, and working one-on-one planning with teachers. After just one year as an instructional coach, I realized that my true passion is teaching children and having my own classroom. I am grateful for the opportunity that coaching gave me, and I am more excited than ever to be back in the classroom...as a second grade teacher! I occasionally post instructional videos on my Facebook page and website. You can check out my 45 minute video about implementing guided reading groups by clicking here: Facebook Live Video on Implementing Guided Reading.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My philosophy of education is inspired by the following quote, "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." My goal is to create innovative, fun, and interactive activities for you to do with your students. I am honored that you are visiting my Teachers Pay Teachers store! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your lesson planning!
