I am currently teaching Kindergarten. I have taught Reading Recovery, second grade Language Arts, and first grade. I have had training in Reading Recovery, Literature Circles, Literacy Groups, Simple 6 Writing and Math, Six Traits, Four Block, mClass, DIBELS, Phonics Dance, and Reading Academy for First Grade,
My teaching style is a mixture of old school and research based educational strategies that promote kids to become independent learners. I love to include literature and movement in my curriculum too. My students are enriched with literacy and math stations throughout the day.
Yet to be added
I graduated from the University of Southern Indiana. I also have a Kindergarten Endorsement from Indiana University.
I truly enjoy teaching. It's very rewarding to spark a child's learning from within and see the "lightbulb" come on when there is a connection made between the child and his/her own learning.
