TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Over the last 11 years I have taught 1st and 5th grade multiple subjects, as well as K-5 ELD, in Title 1 schools. I have taught in Michigan, California, and now Oregon. I love every moment of what I do, and strive to make each day remarkable for my students!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that every child deserves a differentiated education. Therefore, I use the SIOP model for whole group delivery, as well as leveled groups for small group instruction. The vast majority of my teaching and student learning is hands-on and interactive.
