TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started my journey in education as a second teacher in an inclusion classroom. I moved on to fourth grade for four years where I taught in an inclusion class and a TD class. I then worked as a literacy facilitator for grades K-5 for three years. Currently, I work as an Academic Facilitator and Coach for a middle school in grades 6-8. Education is my passion and creating resources is a calling.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Inquiry-based, hands-on, engaged instruction with an authentic purpose, all under the lens of literacy.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I will never create or sell anything that I haven't or wouldn't use in my own classroom! I believe in resources that support student achievement and my goal is to create resources that will help you do just that!
