I am a looping teacher from grades k-2. This has given me the experience with standard progressions first hand. My work is focused on differentiated and small group instruction. My experience has also caused me to focus on time management. I create low to no prep products for the everyday teacher.
I am a "whole brain teacher" many of my produce with follow the philosophy of WBT. That basically means the students are engaged in not only learning the information, but teaching it to their peers as well. We use hand motions, recreations, and game to make education exciting and engaging!
I have been nominated as teacher of the month, teacher of the year, teacher closing the achievement gap, and rookie of the year!
When I first started my adult education physics was my intended major. This makes me very aware of how essential it is to teach all students to be fluent mathematicians and to love the sciences. After my first two years I realized it wasn't for me. I volunteered in a school district and fell in LOVE! I immediately changed my major to the very competitive field of early childhood education. I attended Youngstown state university for 2 1/2 years, and transferred to Wright State University where I finished my degree.
Differentiation? Small group? Lesson planning? Who has time for that! My low prep thematic units engage students in a rigorous way. Students are asked to make connections and build on their ideas throughout the week. All units are differentiated to fit the needs of all students.
