TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have spent 8 years in the public and charter schools in California and New York. During those years, I created differentiated reading and math collaborative workstations. I have creating individualized tutoring lessons and plans for a variety of students. I am currently working in a California public school doing small group academic support (intervention) with grades K-5.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I incorporate pictures and clipart into as much of my work as possible. It is such an important tool for making learning more accessible to pre-readers and English Language Learners. I like to keep my lessons and workstations simple so as not to create confusion for students, especially students learning English as a second language. I value lessons that are clear, concise, and scaffolded well so that students will gradually build independence.
