TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught special education for 7 years for both 5th and 6th graders. I have jumped into general education this year as a 5th grade teacher. I have experience in the resource, self-contained, and co-teaching setting. My approach to differentiation comes from my experience on both sides. My passion is integrating Character Education into the classroom as much and as often as possible!
