TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught all subjects, grades K-5, special education, and general education. I am currently a 4th grade teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe all students can learn and it is up to me to meet that potential. Students learn best in a well balanced classroom. I think technology is just as important as "paper pencil." Students love QR Codes just as much as they love getting out the construction paper and markers. If you walk into my classroom at any given point is will look a little crazy, but I promise you my kids are learning and having fun.
