I've taught every grade except second and high school. Currently, I teach fifth grade science and social studies, but previously taught all subjects in a self-contained fifth grade classroom. I have taught English classes in an adult vocational school setting for four years.
I enjoy engaging students in lively conversation. I love to tell stories, create hand gestures, give many real life examples, and use lots of hands on activities. My expectations are high and my classroom has a rigorous culture, but I am well known for being supportive of all learners regardless of their level.
