TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught grades 3-5 for the last 14 years in public schools in North Carolina. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from UNC-Wilmington, my Master's Degree from Pfeiffer University in Elementary Education as well. I earned my National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist in 2005. I have been a general ed. teacher, as well as a ELA teacher. I have worked in both AIG and EC inclusion settings as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a kid-centered approach to teaching. I spend a lot of time getting to know my students' strengths, weaknesses, backgrounds, interests, and dislikes. I try to teach a lot of small group lessons to meet the needs of all of my students. I love incorporating technology and inquiry-based learning projects, as often as possible. The best part of my job is working with children and seeing them "get it" after working hard on a skill or concept.
