I have been teaching for 13 years in Florida public schools. Presently I am a Reading Coach for 4th and 5th graders. Working with the District's curriculum department, my focus is adapting Common Core reading strategies for my average and struggling students.
I favor the constructivism theory of education in that students learn best my engaging in read-world activities. Each child is unique and brings their own talents to the classroom. My role as the facilitator is to set high expectations and help each of them reach their potential.
