TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught kindergarten for 13 years, 2nd grade for 1 year, and have recently taken a position closer to home as an Academic Skills tutor for K-2. This change also allows me to put more time into designing resources, and remain involved with the TPT community. As a teacher-author, I've been selling resources since 2011, and love every minute of it. :-)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Balanced approach to literacy and mathematics; encouraging student discourse, problem solving, and strategies to apply basic foundations within a positive learning environment.
