I started my teaching career as a reading teacher and for 4 years serviced grades K-6. In 2009 I became 2nd grade classroom teacher. I am currently in a co-taught teaching environment where I have students with abilities from PP-3rd grade level. Differentiation is what I do all day long so often I need to create things to best meet the needs of my students.
I love to use different things such as technology, hands on activities and games to help make learning fun!
I have a Bachelor's degree in Childhood Educations (K-6) from SUNY Fredonia, and a Master's degree in Childhood Literacy (B-6) from St. Bonaventure University.
