MA in Gifted Education from Columbia University/Teacher's College. Supervised teaching interns, providing strategies, observations, and assessments to improve lesson planning, classroom management, and multicultural competencies. Created and facilitated professional development sessions for educators.
Uses differentiation, cooperative groups, and responsive classroom approaches to ensure that all students feel successful. Enjoys active classroom, where many learners are working towards understanding at the same time. Respects, and frequently applies, tried and true approaches such as quizzes, cold calling, and letter grading (why through the baby out with the bath water?)
