TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my ninth year teaching middle school. I have taught in three different districts in Florida. I have taught a year of Life Science, but currently teach Reading and Language Arts to ESE students. For three years I served as a co-teacher in the regular education classroom, but I am happy to have my own classroom once again.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My philosophy is that if I am not excited about a lesson than my students will not be as well. I enjoy having hands on lessons for my students.
