TEACHING EXPERIENCE

At the beginning of my teaching career, I spent 5 years as a third grade teacher. For the last four years I have taught 6th grade. I currently work at a 10/10 school which maintains a API score of over 950. I have a certification in Gifted and Talented Education, but I love working with kids of all kinds. I use interactive notebooks for EVERY subject I teach, so many of my products lend themselves to the notebook format, although anyone can use them in the the classroom.
