TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in the intermediate grades, as both a general classroom teacher, as well as a special education teacher. I have used a variety of programs and learning approaches throughout my career. Like many, I have often worked in places where there has been a lack of resources to support state standards or district initiatives. Therefore I have an extensive collection of teacher made materials. I hope some of the things I have created can be useful to you, and save you the time it takes to create them.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands on, cooperative learning approaches seem to be what I gravitate towards. However, I think using a variety of styles in lesson planning is beneficial to the students.
