TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 7 years; five years in 3rd grade and two years in 4th grade. I spent four of those years teaching for Orange County Public Schools in Orlando, Florida. I currently teach in the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kansas.

MY TEACHING STYLE

If I had to describe my teaching style in a few words I would say: student centered, differentiated, and hands-on.
