TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My first experience included substitute teaching, in which I truly learned a lot while working with a variety of grade levels and classroom settings, including special education. I then taught Kindergarten for four years in a Catholic school. I have worked with all grade levels through my experience as a Title I teacher for four years, too. My most recent experience has been in a departmentalized setting for 5th and 6th grade math. Coming this August, I will take on a new challenge of RTI/math specialist. I have a Masters degree in instructional strategies. My endorsements include math, language arts, and science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in promoting higher order thinking skills through classroom discussion as well as the activities I choose to use with my students. You may observe many of my projects are open-ended in order for the students to create, think on their feet, and use those higher order thinking skills to demonstrate understanding. This often also allows differentiated levels more easily by students' generated responses and work! When students CREATE, it doubles the learning! I love to continue to learn, am always open for hearing new ideas/suggestions, and sharing with others!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have published my own children's book, "Mardi Gras in New Orleans: an alphabet book." It is a goal to hopefully publish another one, or two, or three. You get the picture!
