TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've just completed my 20th year as a teacher. Most of those years were in the primary grades. I also had a 3 year foray as a Literacy Coach. I've always taught in Title 1 schools with lots of English Language Learners.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to teach with the brain in mind. (Ha ha) What I mean by that is that I try to use lots of brain-based learning strategies: limit the amount of time I talk, incorporate movement, speech, writing, drawing, rehearsing, etc.
