I have spent extensive time with Elementary Education students. I did much of my undergrad in 2nd, 4th and 5th grade classrooms. I spent all of my student teaching experience in a 5th grade classroom and loved every single minute of it. I really have a passion for teaching reading and social studies. I spent a great deal of time working with teachers on curriculum and unit plans. I love creating new activities and lessons for students to help them gain a deeper understanding of the content.
My teaching style is all about fun with hard work. I am a strict teacher but I don't have to be when the students are engaged and working.I like to keep everything organized and ready to go. I spend a lot of time preparing lessons and brainstorming new ideas to always keep the classroom and lessons fresh and exciting. I am all about movement and singing in the classroom. I like to come up with dances or short phrases that help keep material and content fresh in the students minds. Plus they just love it!
