I am currently the Title I Coordinator/Parent Liaison for a K-5 school. I have been a Title I Coordinator for two different elementary schools, for a total of 5 years. I taught first grade for 10 years and a third grade for one year. I also serve on the Advisory Board of our New Tech High School.
I believe in encouraging students to participate by modeling lessons, asking guiding questions and promoting interaction from teacher to student as well as student to student. I want to foster students to become independent, life long learners.
