TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for 13 years! I have taught from PreK to third grade, but I love first grade best!! In addition to teaching first grade, I am also a cooperating teacher for student teachers from The Ohio State University.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Currently, I team teach with another first grade teacher. We have two complete classes in one very large classroom! We love this model because it allows more opportunities for small group and one-to-one teaching. Students have the benefit of learning from two highly qualified teachers with 22 years of combined experience. Students get to experience stronger modeling during lessons and crews. We work together to model appropriate peer-to-peer behaviors as well as appropriate learning behaviors during whole group lessons.
