TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught Pre-K in a private school for six years after completing college. Next, I was a fourth and later a fifth grade teacher for six. My current position is as a gifted resource teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I work in all grade levels, and it is my goal to model lessons in which all students' needs are addressed using various differentiation strategies such as menus and tiered assignments.
