TEACHING EXPERIENCE

She has a Masters degree in elementary education and has taught in the elementary classroom for 19 years. She has experience teaching all subjects in grades three, four, and five.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Jeanne Sovet is a believer in positive classroom management, praise, empathy, and encouragement. In her classroom, students are free to ask for help, make mistakes, and express their ideas. Her teaching is explicit. She shows and tells students exactly what is expected, and she sits down and helps them.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT
