TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This will be my fifth year in teaching. I've worked with second, third, fourth and fifth grades. I've taught as a classroom teacher and resource teacher, in dual language and transitional bilingual programs. Over the summer, I teach in a program for young gifted students. I love that my experience has allowed me to work with so many different populations and programs!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to make my classroom as engaging, welcoming and safe as possible for my students. When creating materials I try to make them accessible for all of my students' different leaning styles and levels.
