I have taught in an urban public school district for 14 years. I have taught first and second grade during the regular school year. I have experience teaching Special Education students and English Learners. I have tutored students in grades 3-5, and in summer school taught students in grades 2-3.
I love consistency, compassion, fairness, and structure. I am firm yet fun! I bring energy and enthusiasm to my teaching to engage all students. I firmly believe in modeling, scaffolding, and gradual release.
I have recently been highlighted in our district's "Teacher Spotlight" for the use of technology in my first grade class.
I have a BA and a MEd from the University of Massachusetts. I also have licenses in Special Education of Moderate Disabilities - K-8 and Sheltered English Immersion.
I love teaching!
