TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I primarily taught 4th and 5th grade for 20 years and loved every minute. I am now an Instructional Coach at the county level and work with all elementary grades K-6 and love every minute. My husband was a devildog, United States Marine, and I was fortunate to work in five different districts in various states along the east coast, gaining vast and varied experiences and strategies for impacting student learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style included integrated thematic units with a science or social studies base. I am a strong advocate for differentiating instruction in math and science as well as literacy rotations and centers in English Language Arts.
