TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in South Carolina Title I Schools for ten and a half years. My first two years were spent teaching a 4th/5th grade multiage homeroom. I taught Math, Language Arts, and Science. I taught Science Lab for five years before returning to a looping 4th/5th grade classroom, teaching Math, ELA, Science, and Social Studies. I have been teaching Gifted and Talented Math for four years. Having taught Everyday Math for eight years, I have flipcharts prepared for almost every fourth, fifth, and sixth grade lesson. Please contact me if you would be interested in those.

MY TEACHING STYLE

HANDS-ON! I love integrating technology and use an Interactive White Board non-stop. I had an opportunity to teach in a 1:1 iPad classroom for a year and loved it! I spend as little time as possible lecturing. We're almost always creating, experimenting, viewing, observing, manipulating, role-playing, and discovering.
