TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm currently in my 15th year of teaching, with all of my experience in upper elementary. I've taught 3rd grade, spent over 10 years in 5th grade, and recently returned to 4th grade. As a military wife, I've had the pleasure of teaching in Massachusetts, Washington, Virginia, and currently teach in California.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a good mix of demonstrator and facilitator, and my style is constantly changing as I adapt to the students in front of me year after year. It is most important to me that I create a safe and positive learning environment where conversations about learning can take place and all moments can be learning moments. I use a great deal of the Responsive Classroom approach, especially when it comes to the first six weeks, modeling (and more modeling and MORE modeling) and academic choice. My students are engaged in every part of their learning experience with lots of opportunities for discussion and movement.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

A.A.S. in Criminal Justice A.A.S. in Paralegal Studies B.A. in Political Science M.Ed. in Educational Studies They say that experience is your best teacher, and my two years of service with AmeriCorps gave me an incredible experience in the classroom, one that secured a move from the legal field to that of teaching.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love to travel! I think our best education comes from our personal experiences so I try to get out and see new places in our world whenever I can. Then I bring those experiences back to the classroom!
