20 years of experience teaching grades 2 through graduate school. My areas of specialty are in reading intervention, gifted and talented, English Language Learners, music, and school administration.
You will find my teaching style is very hands on with lots of kinesthetic activities woven into daily reading and writing practice, while everything I do is based on student data. I keep lots of spreadsheets and student records to drive my instruction.
