This is my 9th year in teaching. Among those years, I've taught every core subject area and have covered grades 4-8.
Questions and group work identify my teaching style. As you browse my items, you'll find many activities which are driven through questioning within group dynamics. My students work daily with a partner and often with small groups of four (both mixed ability groups, and similar ability groups).
Awarded New Teacher of the Year in our district for the 2006-2007 school year. Nominated for Teacher of the Year in our district for 2011 and 2012 Awarded Professional Teacher of the Year in our district for 2014
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
