TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an elementary school teacher for 20 years. I have had the pleasure of teaching all grade K-4. I have also been teaching at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte since 2007.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in giving children choices in how they show me what they know. I like to use centers and small group work whenever possible. I differentiate my instruction for all my students and try to meet with each child daily about their reading and math. I see my writers 1 to 2 times a week.
