TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently an instructional coach. My experience includes teaching in a classroom, working as a literacy intervention specialist and working as a speech-language pathologist. I have experience teaching Young 5's (pre-K), Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade. I've also worked with at risk readers in grades K - 2. In addition to working in an elementary school setting, I also have experience teaching classes at the university level as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teachers need to be learners, just like students need to be learners. I believe that each student can succeed! It's my job to help them have the most successful school experience possible. I am lucky to have a "job" that I love!
