This is my 14th year of teaching. Time sure does fly! I have spent 3 years doing reading intervention K-5 and this will be by 11th year teaching 1st grade. I was a LETRS trainer in CO and a trainer of teachers for DIBELS. I have a crazy love for all phonics and phonological awareness!
I try to do as much hands on work as possible. When learning is fun students beg for more! My goal is to constantly have students assessing themselves and figuring out their next learning goal. I also want to differentiate as much as possible. Students are only engaged if they are working at their level!
