TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a primary teacher at a little school just off the beach in sunny Florida! This is my 14th year teaching. I have taught 1st grade forever but and have tutored or taught summer school for all grades from PreK to 5th!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a hands-on teacher. I am not a fan of basal readers, workbooks or worksheets. Most of the time I am sitting on the floor working with my students. The majority of my day is spent teaching small groups so Daily 5 and Math Stations are a perfect fit for my class! I am a bit OCD so I am obsessed with baskets, bins and anything that is color coded!
