Noreen Ingram has taught for a decade covering the core subjects of math, reading, science, and history. She has taught in inner-city Richmond, VA as well as in a county school with a plethora of experience with Title I students living in poverty. Her lessons incorporate methods and strategies targeting at-risk students and traditional learners. Noreen has taught kindergarten, first, third, fourth, and fifth grades over the last ten years. She is very passionate about working with at-risk students as she works at a school in a high-poverty area. She also enjoys working with high-achieving students as she founded her school's chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society. She is experienced in developing lessons and understanding the reality of working with students along the learning spectrum, from those who have special education needs to students who are gifted. Additionally, she has worked with colleagues across curriculums to enhance her learning as well as that of her students.
I believe in teaching the whole child and presenting highly engaging lessons that allow students to practice what they have learned and express themselves in a variety of ways. Every student learns differently and it is the responsibility of the teacher to help every child find success.
