I am excited to have taught Kindergarten for 11 years. I have also taught a variety of other grade levels including 1st-6th grades through an ESS (Extended School Services) program as well.
I love to teach with a very hands-on approach. Since I teach Kindergarten, I use a lot of modeling and guided practice, small groups, along with discovery and experimental practice as it fits naturally. I love when teachable moments happen, when I'm least expecting them!
I have been a Co-Literacy Leader, Kindergarten Team Leader, on a SACS Review team as a school representative, a Primary District Committee Team member, a Behavior Team Committee member, a Leader in Me school representative, a Lighthouse Team Member, Rachel's Challenge team leader, Lego team initiative team leader, and worked on my school district's Standards Work initiative.
