I am starting my 27th year of teaching. I have taught: 4 and 4/5 combo for 5 years; DD Preschool 1 year; Kindergarten 5 years; 6th grade self contained 1 year; 1-3 at risk multi-age room, 1 year; High School Alternative 2 years, Middle School Language Arts grades 6-8 1 year; Middle School PE/Health grades 6-8 year; 8th grade Pre-Algebra 3 years; and on-line college courses 1 year; 4 years as the elementary Math Interrventionist/Coach for my district and just started as the Instructional Interventionist/Coach for our 6th Grade Academy. No two days are the same and teaching is still exciting and filled with challenges and rewards!
I lean toward hands-on learning and using game formats. When possible, I use music to help with memory skills and to add fun, enjoyment and movement. I find and/or create activities and lessons for the teachers I work with. I have one of the best jobs in education!
