I have 16 years of teaching experience in grades K-6. Including 7 in K/1 My preference is primary but there is something unique to love about each grade. I also have a semester of remedial reading teaching which is what I hope to do after I earn my Masters in Literacy which I am currently working on.
I LOVE teaching Reading!!!! I teach most of my Science and Social Studies through reading. I love Guided Reading and teaching phonics and word work! I also love utilizing technology in the classroom. I am an e-MINTS certified teacher which is using technology to enhance learning.
District Award for utilizing technology in the classroom. STEAM award recipient for District.
