TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught for 11 years. Most of my teaching experience has been in 5th grade, but I've looped from 4th to 5th twice and taught 4th grade for two consecutive years {all subjects}. I have a masters in Curriculum and Instruction in Reading and received National Boards Certification in Middle Childhood. Being an elementary teacher, I teach all subject areas and think about ways to engage children in content through collaboration and discussion.
