TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 11 years; the first year in technology and the last ten have been in 5th grade. I really enjoy the interaction with the students. I always say that in 5th grade the students are mature enough to have a great discussion, but still young enough to like stickers. They keep me young and sometimes I feel like I'm the one learning. I teach all subjects and spend much of my time free researching and creating lessons that will continue to challenge and motivate my students and follow the common core standards. The biggest compliment for me is when I share my work with my colleagues and they actually use it and like it. Reading is BIG in my classroom! We are always busy reading, whether it is shared, guided, independent, read-a-louds, or literature circles. My goal each year is to try to convert the non-readers into lovers of literature

MY TEACHING STYLE

With the introduction of the common core standards, I am focused more than ever on the intergration of the core subjects into science and social studies.
