I am beginning my 11th year as an educator. My first 10 years were spent as an elementary school teacher; I've taught 4th and 5th grade. This year, I'm taking on a new role as the Elementary Social Studies Instructional Coach. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time about my new position!
I aim to use a variety of instructional practices in my classroom. I enjoy using interactive approaches to delivering the standards to my students. Groups and menus are two of my favorite strategies that I use in my classroom.
