I have worked in elementary schools for 15 years. I have taught students from K-5th grade. I have been a classroom teacher, technology teacher, media assistant and substitute.
I love hands on activities. In my class we do a lot of centers and creating. I love cut and paste activities. I rely heavily on differentiation to meet the needs of my learners and I also believe in using spiral review as part of my guided math time. I strive to include opportunities for teachers to use differentiation in the products I post in my store. Sections of the resource can be assigned to different groups based on their needs. Easier portions of a resource might be usable in the beginning of the year and more challenging parts toward the end of the year. Many of my resources would still be at least partially usable if you moved up or down a grade level.
I have been considered a teacher leader at my school. I served as team leader on grade levels of 6-9 teachers as well as several committees. I have been pleased to have been requested as a teacher by many students and their parents.
