TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching has always been my dream job, and I cannot imagine myself in another career. I've had 6 years in the middle school English classroom and just completed my first year as an Instructional Coach at a middle school. I am blessed beyond measure and LOVE my job!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a "Choiceboard - Hands-On - Group work - Projects-Based" kind of teacher and coach. My classroom was one where the students were up and moving and consistently engaged, and I was sure it was all standards-driven. My coaching is parallel to this. I want my teachers up and moving, diving into their own curriculum, and collaborating as much as possible because team work equals success.
