I spent my first two years teaching 3rd and 4th grade, and now I focus solely on ELs! I work with 1st and 3rd grade, both for co-taught ELA classrooms and pull-out services. I have always thrived on creating my own culturally-relevant pedagogy and this is a place I'd like to share that with others!
I love interdisciplinary teaching! For that reason, I incorporate as many different subject areas and real-world application problems into my teaching as possible. I also adore using mentor texts to expedite student learning.
Highly Qualified Teacher, according to NCLB
I grew up in Geneva, Switzerland and went to an IB school since I was young. Because of that, I completed the PYP, MYP, and DP programs and loved their interdisciplinary and inquiry-based style--that has definitely impacted my teaching! Then I went to Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN for my bachelors degree. I majored in Elementary Education and Theatre and received an ELL endorsement.
