Teacher Assisting- 5th Grade Student Teaching- 2nd Grade 5th and 6th Grade Teacher- 1 year K-5 Reading and Math Interventionist - 1 year 3rd Grade Reading and Math Interventionist- 1 year 2nd grade Teacher- 2 years and counting
A good mix between student and teacher centered. I do not believe in "everyone gets a trophy" so I often integrate some sort of competition in daily activities. One of main priorities aside from teaching the content is teaching students to be problem solvers. My goal is for my students to feel confident to take risks and try things on their own before asking for help. I like to use real world experiences within my lessons. I often use hands on tactics to reinforce skills taught.
