Taught 1st and Pre-1st at Title 1 Professional Development School. Curriculum and Instructional Specialist K-5 for 4 years. Currently teaching 3rd grade.
My goal is to provide meaningful learning experiences for kids. I'm not a fan of the way elementary instruction has deteriorated into a sequence of skill-based lessons and practice, rather than units of active inquiry and investigation. I want my students to connect to their learning and have the opportunity to apply it in exciting and memorable ways.
