This is my 14th year of teaching. I have taught one year in 3rd grade, four years in 5th grade, and this is my 9th year in second grade. I have also spent five of my teaching years as an ESOL lesson plan writer for elementary ELL paras. I taught in a rural district for 1 year, a suburban district for 9 years, and a diverse urban district the last 4 years. I've had a lot of different teaching experiences.
I like to engage my students in the content in many different ways to make learning fun. Collaboration becomes more and more important every year, so the kids can learn to connect with different personalities of people in different ways. I think building relationships and trust with the students is very important. I prefer for my classroom to be a calm learning environment.
Yet to be added
I have earned my Associate's, Bachelor's, and Master's degrees.
I provide activities, printable, and book supplements for primary teachers so that you can keep your students engaged and learning.
