This is my fifth year teaching 5th grade and I absolutely love it! I am continuing to create products that engage my students to get them excited for learning! I am a Golden Apple Scholar of Illinois where I spent four summers teaching students in inner city poverty schools in Chicago. In addition, I took over 700 hours of professional development courses. I also completed a year long student teaching program where I taught in a 5th grade ESL class and a 2nd grade class. I also coached 4th and 5th grade sports for 3 years.
I believe in student-led instruction where the students are collaborating and exploring together. The teacher should serve as the facilitator. These are problem-solving life skills that I want my students to have and take with them as they progress into middle school.
