TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The bulk of my experience is in Response to Intervention (RTI), but I've also taught first and second grades. My RTI resources are primarily reading intervention based.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a very open, hands-on style in the classroom. My goal is for students to learn and apply new information while also learning to visualize new concepts and skills.
