I currently teach kindergarten and love it! I have taught kinder for 6 years. I have experience teaching pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade. I also have experience tutoring students from grades k-5. I have had the opportunity to re-write/re-create some of my school's curriculum and supplemental programs including: reading, math, science, and vocabulary.
I teach at a Direct Instruction school, so my classroom teaching method conforms to that style. With that said, it is important to meet the needs of all students. I enjoy creating lessons and learning tools that help reinforce what is being learned in the classroom and provide valuable repetition with concepts. As a kindergarten teacher, I love using song, rhyme, and hand motions to teach concepts.
