I am on my 11th year teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. I have taught many levels from Special Education, Remedial reading classes all the way to Honor and Gifted classes. I love teaching so much I currently serve as my school's Learning Coach, where I help new and veteran teachers achieve their greatest potential. This year I will also train and serve as a Digital Literacy Coach. I am endorsed in Teaching Technology and K-12 Reading.
I'm not sure if their is a style called loud crazy learning, but if there is- that's my classroom. The only time I require quiet learning is during independent reading and even then- the students are up and moving as needed. I mostly follow a to-with-by approach so my students have access to one-on-one attention. Right now I teach a Co-Taught class with a Sped Teacher and we are perfecting the "Least restrictive environment" theory and have found a lot of success with our students.
Yet to be added
I have a teaching degree from Southern Utah University along with a bachelors degree in Sociology. I have a minor in social studies, so the upper elementary grades have always appealed to me. I do have a reading endorsement and a Teaching Technology endorsement.
I am a mom to 3 beautiful children and my husband works as a vice principal at an elementary. So we look forward to summers :)
