I have taught 5th grade for four years and will be teaching a multigrade classroom for 5th/6th graders this year. I enjoy teaching Math and love to have my students up and moving in the classroom. Excited for all the new experiences!
My teaching style includes the constructivist classroom. I like to set my students up to learn on their own or from one another. Small groups and pairs are a big focus on my classroom so my students are always up and moving. I feel the movement keeps them focused on the lesson and working with their peers helps tame the socialization piece!
Yet to be added
I graduated from the University of Nebraska Omaha with my bachelors degree in elementary education. That August I began teaching 5th grade in a poverty area school. During my third year of teaching I started working towards my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Wayne State College. I graduated in May 2012.
I am a mother, wife, and teacher who loves to read and run daily.
