TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught first grade for several years before switching to teaching K - 12 art. As a first grade teacher I planned all phonics instruction and created all the resources for independent practice and assessment for myself and the other first grade teachers at my school. As a first grade teacher I regularly saw an average of 1.25 - 1.5 years of reading growth every year thanks to phonics (and reading comprehension) instruction that was logical and engaging.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I firmly believe in using every minute of time wisely. I never use any busy work, but I do make all the work that my students do fun and engaging. I believe in backwards planning and teaching in an I do, We Do, You Do format so students are set up for success and able to practice meaningfully on their own. Specifically with phonics I believe very firmly in teaching phonics in a quick, fun, logical way. I don't use word families, but rather teach students to decode and encode sound by sound. For every new sound, I teach the skills in the same order: I dentify the sound B lend orally R ead in isolation D ecodable text S egment the sounds and spell This order allows kids to learn the sound first, then how to read the grapheme, then how to use the phoneme correctly to spell. This order builds on skills logically and allows students to make sense out of what can otherwise seem like a confusing set of phonics rules.
