Taught in each of the following grades: Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd. Currently I teaching reading RTI and reading as a specials class to first and second grade. I focus on the five components of reading: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics,Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension.
I like to meet students on their levels by including low, middle and high level teaching throughout my lessons. I like to group students with similar ability levels to help them soar, but at the same time to provide time for interaction/group work with students of varying levels to build a positive classroom community. I feel it is necessary to include as many learning styles as possible for all learners. I am exceptionally aware of kinesthetic learning with early learners and develop/incorporate various movements for helping the brain engage through movement.
