I have been teaching kindergarten for the past 7 years and I have also taught 2nd grade. Currently, our kindergarten program is half-day, but I've also taught full day kindergarten. I absolutely love working with young learners! I love the passion they bring to the classroom.
I love having children work together. I use a lot of flexible grouping in my day to serve my students. I use formative assessment to help me determine my groupings for small mini-lessons. I love watching and hearing the children explore their surroundings. I think one of the most powerful things is having children cooperatively learn and having them teach one another!
Yet to be added
I have a Masters of Science in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. I have the Teacher Leader endorsement from the University of Cincinnati. I also many post graduate hours in math and science early childhood education.
Personally, I am married with two great young children. I also have a fantastic puppy. I love to run, swim, and bike!
