TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught first grade and second grade for over a decade before taking on a new role as a K-6 literacy coach. Throughout my years as a classroom teacher, I supervised student teachers and mentored new teachers. Additionally, I have co-taught a graduate-level course in elementary education at a local university.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and provide my students with opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University. I have also completed a Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) teacher endorsement program and am a Google certified Level 1 and 2 educator and Google certified trainer.
