I have eight years of experience as a classroom teacher. I began my career as a Kindergarten teacher, then taught 3rd grade for four years, and then 5th grade for two years. I also taught English in Japan and preschool for four years prior to elementary school. I use the Flipped Classroom technique for teaching struggling math students and I incorporate online response and forums through the use of Moodle learning management system for Language Arts.
