I have taught grades 2, 3 and 5 in the Kansas public schools. I am currently in my 6th year of teaching.
I love to implement as much student-centered learning as possible with me acting as facilitator. I always try to incorporate cooperative learning, technology, project-based learning, Daily 5 and small group instruction.
