I have been teaching elementary school for 16 years. I have taught Kinder, first, second, third, and fifth grade, as well as reading intervention classes ranging from Kinder to sixth grade. I have also taught education and child development classes at the university level for pre-service and practicing teachers for over 12 years.
I believe that children benefit from clear objectives and engaging, explicit instruction. My lessons include examples and non examples of the skill so students have a clear understanding of the concept. I also believe in providing children plenty of opportunity for review and practice. I love integrating technology.
