TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a first grade teacher and I cannot imagine doing anything else! First grade is such a fun age and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I also have experience teaching students in K-5 as an intervention teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My passion is to teach in a way that will encourage my students to LOVE learning. I incorporate many hands-on activities, partner projects, and independent learning activities. I enjoy teaching through small groups and workshop to meet each individual student at their targeted learning needs.
