TEACHING EXPERIENCE

6th grade ELA teacher in NYC public schools. Going into my 6th year of teaching!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love hands-on activities and total participation/engagement. I try to have my students up and moving at least once in our lesson. I love group work, stations, carousal activities and literature circles.
