TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my 9th year teaching; my 8th in first grade. I love teaching children at this age. They are excited to learn and love school! In first grade children make progress so quickly and you can really see them learning new things. I love to see the light come on in their eyes when they are catching on to something new- so rewarding!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Reading block consumes most of my day and it is set up as a "workshop". I teach small reading groups while other students complete independent work stations. Lately I've been trying to set up math in the same way. By teaching smaller groups of students at a time I can individualize my lessons to better meet their needs.
