I have taught for 20 years. Eleven years as a Level One Resource teacher in grades K-5 and 9 years in Third Grade.
I teach in the workshop model for Language Arts, using the Daily 5 model. I love to incorporate technology in the classroom, through the use of the SMARTboard, i-pads and mac labs we have available to us.
