TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We both have experience teaching pull-out, inclusion, and general education math and science classes in middle school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We share a classroom and co-teach for about half of our day. We have transitioned to a full workshop model in our room for both math and science.
