I have been a full-time teacher for 19 years. I have taught from grades 2-5 in all subject areas. I have a strong passion for creating a classroom atmosphere that is inviting and motivating for student learning. My ability to establish and maintain positive management techniques, along with my strong organizational skills have always allowed me to maximize my effectiveness as a teacher.
I like to integrate technology in the classroom using computers and smartboards. I use a lot of cooperative learning, hands-on activities, Daily Five, and differentiation techniques to motivate and meet the needs of all my students.
