I have taught first and third grades as a classroom teacher. I have seven years of experience as a Reading and Math Intervention teacher and I also served as RTI coordinator for two years. I am trained in Reading Recovery and currently work as an instructional coach in Plainview ISD.
I believe that learning should be fun and engaging. Students should be involved in their learning at every point, so my products contain many games and activities that keep students busy learning.
