TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 6 years. Most of this time was spent in 3rd grade, but I have also worked with Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 4th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Many of my products are geared toward struggling students who need additional scaffolding in order to be successful. I love building confidence and ability in students who don't have it!
