Kindergarten Teacher: 3 years First Grade Teacher: 7 years Second Grade Teacher: 3 years Visual Arts (Pre-K-10th): 2 years Literacy Coach Title 1 Reading and Math
I would say it is very hands-on. I do what it takes for the students to learn. I use differentiation, cooperative learning, centers, balanced literacy and much more! I truly enjoy meeting in small groups or with students individually so I can assess their needs and plan future instruction. Learning is a process, not a product.
