I have taught for 16 years. I am currently teaching 3rd grade for my 5th year. I taught 4th grade one year, and 2nd grade for 8 years. I also taught 1st, 6th, and 7th grade.
I teach minilessons in whole group and have students discuss their learning with each other. I use small group to do the more intense teaching while the other students are at workstations.
I have had the honor of being a mentor teacher for 3 colleges students (now graduated and teaching).
I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Certification and Masters in Early Childhood Education.
