I have been teaching for 17 years. I taught Kindergarten for 14 years, 1st grade for 2 years, and I am currently a Reading Interventionist for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I have also taught Adult Education Computer Classes. I am National Board Certified (2002) and I recertified in (2011). I am an expert in using technology in the classroom: from mp3 players to the Promethean Board to Active Expressions. I am also the A-Team coordinator for my school.
I use a hands-on approach to learning. I like to use group work, literacy and math stations, and lots of technology. I also implement reading workshop and writing workshop in my classroom for a balanced literacy approach. For my Reading Intervention I use the LLI (Leveled Literacy Intervention) Program and AimsWeb Progress Monitoring.
