I started my teaching career in 1988. I have taught many grade levels but have spent most of my time in the intermediate grades. I love teaching all subjects.
Every year is different, but my goal remains the same. I want my students to love coming to school. I try to create a motivating, inviting and challenging environment for all learners. I use Daily 5 in my literacy block and the Daily 3 or 4 in my math block. I don't necessarily follow the program to the letter. I love to tweak programs and recreate them to fit the needs of my students. I have just recently ventured into co-teaching in math and am loving it.
