My first year of teaching was in 2000 in first grade. I them taught kindergarten for 5 years, EIP k-5 reading and math for 1 year, second grade for 2 years, and academic coach for a title school for 2 years. I am currently teaching first grade and loving it!
I teach with formative assessments, differientiation, small groups, and student driven tasks. I love to integrate curriculum to promote real world connections in learning. I encourage higher order thinking in every task presented in a classroom.
