I am a seasoned teacher with a diverse background in educating both inner city and suburban classrooms. I taught second grade and a 4th/5th split. In addition to public school teaching, I have taught Sunday school in 1st grade. I currently run a 6-8th grade middle school Sunday school classroom including full responsibility for lesson plans and curriculum. Currently, I lead TWO Girl Scout troops; one being Brownies for 2nd graders, and the other being 7th graders. The 7th grade troop focuses specifically on fundraising and serving others in the community.
Good teachers know their students! I use different teaching methods in order to reach ALL students effectively. A variety of teaching strategies, a knowledge of student levels, and an implementation of multiple strategies help me to be the utmost effective teacher for my classroom as a whole, and for my individual students.
