TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught first grade for 22 years, and was originally a bilingual (Spanish/English) teacher prior to Prop 227 in California. I developed the So Simple Sightwords Program that is in use throughout the US in classrooms and homes. I have a free website, www.sosimplefirstgrade.com, with free resources for teachers. I enjoy creating resources that help teachers and students alike!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I tend to be a "right-brain", activity-oriented teacher as much as possible. I begin each day with about 70-80 first graders and special ed students in my classroom to teach music/dance (PE), cross-brain actitivies to prepare for learning, then teach the sight word program to the whole group! Much of my day is spent using Daily 5/small group/task-oriented experiences to individualize learning. Even after 22 years at this grade level, I am learning and changing every day!
