I've worked with every grade level from pre-K to 12th. I've worked from students with special needs and GATE students. In the last few years I've been working with middle school and high school students. This year, I have a self contained alternative education classroom for 7th-12th grade students. Check out my new books, lesson plans, and blog at www.forkidsbooks.com
I use Love and Logic in my classroom. I believe in a firm but fair classroom environment. The students understand and respect the structure, but also know they can be themselves and contribute ideas and creativity to the classroom. I am very creative and bring to light the creativity and unique talents from each of my students. I teach fun and meaningful lessons with hands-on and visual components. With my multiple subjects, art, and science backgrounds, I bring in enriched projects and ideas to the classroom.
