I have been teaching for almost 13 yrs ranging in ages from Pre-K to 4th grade. Lately my focus has been to integrate the arts into my classroom to raise test scores.
I like to incorporate a combination of cooperative hands on learning with independant activities to ensure accountability of all students. I am a huge advocator of arts integration in the classroom. Year after year my results have improved.
I am a member of the strategic planning team for my school and have been asked to be a mentor to other teachers on staff. My objective is to enable teachers to use the arts to teach the Common Core.
