This is my 12th year of teaching. I was a long term sub and student teacher in my district prior to being hired. I have taught 1st grade for 4 years, 2nd grade for 1 year and Kindergarten for 6 years (1 year of AM/PM and the rest are full day kindergarten classes).
I like a balance of direct instruction, small group instruction and to facilitate learning and allow my children some independence (in full day kindergarten) during centers. I try to be upbeat and positive as much as possible.

I love teaching Full Day Kindergarten. I am always looking for new and creative ideas.
