I have 20+ years experience teaching young children. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Iowa State University. I have taught in Iowa, Texas and Florida.
My teaching style is the student-centered approach to learning. In my classroom, teachers and students play an equally active role in the learning process. My primary role is to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material. Student learning is measured through both formal and informal forms of assessment, including group projects, student portfolios, and class participation. Teaching and assessment are connected.
