I have taught 6th grade for 2 years. I taught Title 1 4th-6th grade for 2 years, 3rd grade for 7 years, and 2nd grade for 1 year. I am currently a math interventionist for grades kindergarten through five. I am in my fourth year of that. I teach in VA so most of my products specifically relate to VA, but of course the Common Core is very close to our state standards.
I try to incorporate hands-on and real world experiences. I teach math in small groups. I try to make the rigor much higher on all activities. Basic knowledge is not where I stop.
BSED with a minor in mathematics from West Chester University of Pennsylvania MSED in Literacy & Culture w/ a Reading Specialist Endorsement from Longwood University
I have an awesomely active son who plays many sports. He keeps me busy as I coach him in both soccer and wrestling. I sometimes even assist with baseball.
