TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught first grade, first grade with inclusion students, and gifted and talented first grade through fifth grade. I also have taught as an adjunct literacy professor.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All students can learn and all students need and deserve challenges appropriate to their learning styles. My activities are great for critical thinking, deductive reasoning, logic, and for purposeful, engaging "early finisher" work. As I align myself and my personal instruction with the common core demands, I'm uploading my tools to TpT.
