I have been an elementary school teacher for 7 years. I have taught primarily middle school students as and English teacher, reading teacher, and a special education teacher.
Most of my daily teaching is comprised using the notion of gradual release. Most of my materials compliment any teacher whose style focuses on the "I do it, we do it, you do it" philosophy!

When I am not teaching academics, I enjoy teaching my students painting and craft skills.
