I have taught pre-K, kindergarten, 1st grade, 4th grade and 4th/5th grade combination. This is my third year as an 'Instructional Coach' which includes coaching in all of the core academic areas as well as facilitating Learning Team Meetings.
My teaching style is hands-on with my major goal of moving from direct instruction to the facilitator of instruction. The more students are empowered and given choices in their education the greater and more profound their growth!
I am a National Board Certified teacher. I was also a recipient of the 2009 Excel Award, which rewarded the top 100 teachers in Florida whose students made the most progress from one year to the next according to annual standardized tests. Theses students learned at least 1.5 times, or 50 percent, more than the average student, based on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores for the last three consecutive years.
