TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught first and second grade in general education classrooms. I now teach special education at the elementary level, so I work with pre-K through 5th graders.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love teaching in a multi-sensory way and thinking outside of the box to help students learn new content. I usually use some kind of theme throughout the year and connect all content areas to that theme.
