I've had the priviledge to teach in three CCSD schools - Memminger Elementary School, Buist Academy, and Oakland Elementary School! (Grades 1, 2)
My style of teaching is based on building and maintaining good relationships within and outside the classroom setting - based on love, respect, and high expectations! In regards to instructional style, I focus on implementing Charleston County School District's Mastery Teaching Model, created by Jodi Denton, to teach common core standards. I believe in a balanced curriculum and differentiated learning through whole group, small group, and individual instruction. I highly value teamwork within the classroom, grade level, and the school as a whole. . .and I'm very thankful for the teamwork that we have at Oakland Elementary School!
