I have been an upper elementary teacher for 14 years, mainly in Title I schools.
I believe students need a mix of whole-group and small-group instruction. Some students need a little extra time to learn a skill. I love to work with students who are behind in reading. Watching my students grow and blossom into successful readers is so very exciting!
