I have been teaching for 20 years. The first six years were as a Special Education Resource Teacher for grades 1-4. Then I transferred to the general education classroom where I have been teaching 4th grade for 14 years. The last five years I have been working in a co-teaching classroom - it's the best of all my teaching experiences.
I have a computer-based classroom (eMINTS) and my focus is on combining Whole Brain Teaching techniques with technology in order to provide access to the curriculum for students with diverse needs and strengths. I also LOVE writing, and look for ways to integrate it throughout the curriculum.
