TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After having taught 5th grade for 10 years, I am now teaching accelerated content for 3rd through 5th graders. While teaching 5th grade I taught a range of learners from special education inclusion to RTI to gifted.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe is incorporating critical thinking across the board. Students will rise to meet our expectations if we as teachers give theme chance and the tools to do so. I use workshop models in reading, writing and math with student centered activities.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Nominated for Teacher of the Year 3 times. Teacher of Year Finalist.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate degree is in Middle Grades education with an emphasis on math and language arts. I also hold a Masters degree in Literacy.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been married for 17 years. We have two wonderful children: an 18 year old son and a 2 year old daughter.
