TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching in a one room, kindergarten through eighth grade school. I continued working in one or two room facilities for seven years. Eighteen years ago, I took a fifth grade position in a rural, town school. In my current position, I teach reading, language arts, and science. I also tutor students enrolled in the after school program in the areas of reading and math.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is usually filled with students working in groups or on projects. I am the conductor of the learning. As students are working, I am circulating the room - refocusing, answering questions, and giving feedback. Lecture is only used to set the stage and give background knowledge.
