I'm currently an ESE teacher in Jacksonville, Florida. My experience includes working with students in K-12. I've been a classroom teacher, Media Specialist, Technology Teacher, and a Reading Recovery teacher. My passion is creating easy to understand and visually engaging products which promote success and a positive attitude toward school.
Hmm....perhaps a bit unique and offbeat! I make a plan but don't always follow it as I love to explore topics that arise from discussions and students' interests. My style includes a generous dose of humor, encouragement, movement, hands-on activities, and technology!
Teacher of the Year and....I should probably have these: * Stays Too Late and Needs to Go Home Award * No Life During the School Year Award * Acts Like a Kindergarten Student Award * Oops I Went on the School Bouncy Slide and Sprained My Wrist Award * Trying to Capture Stray Kittens Who Bite Your Finger During Summer Cleaning Award
Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Reading Recovery Training Certifications: Elementary Education, Primary Education, Media Specialist, ESE, Gifted Endorsement, ESOL Endorsement, and Reading Endorsement
