TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started out as a 1st grade aide, then moved to 2nd grade teacher for one year, and finally landed in 4th grade, where I've been for the past 6 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love teaching through movement and kinesthetic activities. I love singing, dancing, and acting out with my students. I've recently created several QR code activities to use with my students...and they eat them up! We love using our Kindle Fires!!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
