I have been teaching for over 13 years. During those years, I have taught Music, Social Studies, Science, Reading, Writing, and English. I guess you could call me a Jack of All Trades!!
I focus on the learning styles of my students. I rely on differentiated lessons that use visuals, writing, collaborative opportunities, and independent study.
