TEACHING EXPERIENCE I have taught for twenty years in a small Title I public school. During these twenty years, I have taught multiple grade levels. For the last three years I have been the tech mentor for my school. I push into classrooms 2 days a month to support teachers with technology lessons.
MY TEACHING STYLE My teaching style is to infuse technology in lessons using the SAMR model. I have 1-1 Chromebook devices in my classroom. I use Google Classrooms with my class. Whole group instruction includes cooperative grouping, guided reading and math. I encourage and excite students to make decisions on their own and find their own inspiration to learn through technology.
