I have been teaching for four years, in first and second grade. I have supplemented our Harcourt Trophies curriculum with other texts and created Common Core aligned resources and reading/language arts lesson plans.
My teaching style is very structured, yet open ended. I try and be consistant with my lesson planning and schedule but encourage my students to answer open ended questions and be as creative as possible. I like to integrate topics across the curriculum as well, pulling science and social studies texts into the reading curriculum as much as possible. I want my students to have a balanced curriculum and be exposed to their science and social studies topics as often as possible.
Yet to be added
I completed my undergraduate degree at Western Carolina University in 2009.
I live and teach in North Carolina. I taught previously in Clark County, Nevada.
