TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught grades 7-12 as a full time English/Language Arts Teacher. I also have substitute experience in grade PreK-12. This fall I will begin my adventures in preschool full time, and I am unbelievably excited! I have been asked to serve as a our buildings PBIS internal coach for the school year as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style seems to be in a constant state of change! I firmly believe that classroom management is the first step to being a great teacher. As I am taking on PBIS this fall, I hope to provide resources to help other teachers keep it positive in their classrooms. I am also a firm believer in hands on activities and fine motor activities for the early elementary classrooms.
