I've taught 3rd through 6th grade, elementary school and middle school. I've also taught gifted (or highly capable) programs.
I like to mix constructivist and traditional methods. I also rely heavily on Columbia Teacher's College literacy methodology: Reader's and Writer's Workshop.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I also received the ETS Recognition of Excellence on the PRAXIS II.
I have a Masters in Education from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington.
