I have been teaching for 7 years in North Carolina. I previously taught preschool in Ohio. I have taught Kindergarten, second grade, third grade, and I am currently teaching fourth grade. Our school uses Investigations Math, Balanced Literacy, and Integrated Units.
I use direct instruction, small groups, and differentiated instruction. I enjoy being creative and incorporating technology.
I am National Board certified and was named Teach of the Year at my school in 2009
I have a B.S. in education from The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) and an add on for elementary ed certification from Ashland University
I am looking for ideas to improve critical thinking skills in my classroom. I am also looking for strategies to promote group learning.
