I have been involved in education for more than 20 years. I have taught first grade, third grade, and fifth grade. I have led many professional development courses at my school, as I served as our formative assessment trainer for two years. Currently, I am serving as a tutor in a title-one middle school with the role of teaching low performing middle-schoolers to read.
I believe in the use of formative assessment to help students perform at their highest potential. I also believe in making the curriculum both engaging and challenging.
Teacher of the Year- 2008
Bachelor of Science in Education
I enjoy creating fun ways to present information to students!
