TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 10 years specializing in Reading/ELA in 1st and 2nd grade. Right now I am working on my M.S. in Library Science at the University of North Texas.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a diverse approach to teaching, helping kids of all different levels achieve their level of success. By using small group with whole group instruction, I tune in to each individual learning ability. I often try to use hands on learning through art and music as well.
