TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in both Colorado and Nevada. I graduated from The University of Delaware as an education major, and have a masters in computers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach fifth grade and have been trained in Kagan (cooperative learning), FOSS (science), and love to use music in my classroom. My masters is in technology, so using an e-beam and responders is a major focus in my classroom.
