I have teaching experience in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade in the state of Georgia. I moved from south GA to the Atlanta/ Roswell area 4 years ago and have been teaching 3rd grade reading/ ELA in the inclusion block and in the accelerated block since.
My goal is to expose students to a variety of genres and authors in order to develop a LOVE of reading in my students. Much of the work in my class is based on self-selected texts so that students have a choice and voice in their learning. I believe that if students learn to love books as I do, the rest will fall into place!
