TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twenty years of teaching experience in grades: Pre-K, K, 1st and 2nd grade reading groups. Nineteen years teaching Reading Recovery. One year of experience teaching reading courses at a community college.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that teachers should have a balanced approach when teaching reading and writing. Phonics instruction should be included within the text that a student is reading and the student should incorporate these skills into their writing as well. When students are actively engaged in their learning, their motivation and creativity increases dramatically!
