TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my career as a Literacy Specialist, teaching K-5. I moved on to fourth grade after that for five years. Next, I taught second grade for two years and I am currently teaching third grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in differentiating as much as possible, which is why I focus my teaching on small, flexible, heterogeneous grouping. I utilize a lot of center activities and I absolutely love my version of the Daily Five!
