I got my start in education through the New York City Teaching Fellows. I taught 5 years in the Bronx at a school for students with emotional disturbance. My students were in grades 3, 4, and 5 with varying ability levels. I am now teaching K-8 inclusion students in Colorado. I have experience teaching literacy (from pre-primer to about a 5th grade level), math (pre-primer - 5th), science, and social studies--particularly NY geography and history. I also have taken many classes towards dance education in public schools that utilized NYC's Dance Blueprint.
My style is whatever my students need!!! As a special education teacher I must adjust what I'm doing to what works. One hour I may be using graphic organizers and sentence frames to support ELL students. The next hour I may be hopping around on the floor, counting with kindergarten students. The next I may be engaged in a deep discussion about a controversial article with sixth graders!

I have my bachelor's in Psychobiology, my masters in Urban Education, and a lot of credits in dance education. I am currently taking classes towards being ELL certified.
