I have been a classroom teacher for 14 years. Early childhood education is my calling! I am a frequent presenter for our staff and community partners primarily focusing on reading, writing, and classroom management. ***I have a high ELL population in my classroom.
I tell my kiddos at the beginning of each year that my job is to be their coach but THEY are in charge of their learning. I believe in planning integrated lessons that build skill upon skill. I am a resource to the kids and it is my job to assess and diagnose what they need in order to be successful but THEY are ultimately responsible for the learning itself. My classroom is full of love and laughter, music and movement, and at its best is a controlled chaos of explorers and learners.
