I am starting my 11th year as an elementary school teacher. I have taught kindergarten, first grade and was a reading pull out teacher for grades k to 5. Two of those years, I taught kindergarten dual language! Kindergarten is where my heart is! This year, I will start a new adventure as I move out of the classroom to be our school's Literacy Coach. Reading is my passion and I'm so excited for what this new role will bring!
A typical day in my classroom involves students participating in hands on activities, lots of reading and writing through content areas, students working collaboratively, students working with me in small groups based on student's needs and students having fun!
