This is my 9th year teaching in public schools in Western Kentucky. I have worked with preschool and have taught:1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th. I have worked in a self-contained classroom as well as have been departmentalized as I am now.
I use interactive resources, real world application of content knowledge, provide upbeat lessons, integrate motivational writing projects to spark student interest, use cooperative groups with lead roles, add humor to keep the classroom light, enjoy using centers, and reading and writing workshop.
