TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 33 years of experience as an educator. I was a classroom teacher in grades two through six for over 20 years. I have also served as district literacy coach, writing coach, science coordinator and lab teacher. Retiring from Marietta City Schools in 2009, I currently work as an educational consultant.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer an integrated approach, tailoring lessons to better address students' needs and learning styles. Engagement is key! Students do not learn from work they won't or can't do. I have found that the more actively involved students are in their own learning, the more content they retain. I have had great success using scaffolding: -I do, you watch (modeling) -I do, you help (shared learning) -You do, I help (guided learning) -You do, I watch (independent learning)
