I am currently teaching 3rd grade, but for the five years prior to this I have had the opportunity to work at 2nd grade and have taught 2nd grade academy classes, reading intervention classes, and regular education at this level. I have taught 4th grade and 5th grade science and math. I have taught 5th and 6th grade ELA instruction.
Teaching with centers and differentiation while integrating technology, reader's workshop, and writer's workshop helps to drive a balanced literacy program where personal student goals can be developed and achieved through personalized instructional methods and project-based learning directives.
