TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 21 years at the same school in Mandeville, Louisiana. I taught 1st grade for six years, then 2nd grade for 15 years, and now I am going back to 1st grade. I was the director of our summer camp for three years and have worked both before and after school programs. I also work as the web manager and technology point person for our school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I run a disciplined classroom, but I also believe that students must be given responsibilities in order to learn how to be responsible. I use a mini-society in my classroom to help build a community of learners. I would much rather use hands-on center activities to teach my students, instead of JUST a textbook. I differentiate instruction for both low and high performing students.
