I started teaching in 1994! I have taught both special education and general education students in all grade levels ranging from Kindergarten through 12th grade! My focus now is mostly 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.
I use Workshop Models, Small Groups, Interactive Notebooks, and Kagan Structures when teaching. I strive for Fun and Engaging!
