I have taught second and third grade for 10 years. In the past I have been a looping teacher where I kept my same class for two years consecutively. I have had a total inclusion classroom where instruction has been differentiated to meet the needs of a diverse range of learners from special education to gifted education.
I believe in creating a classroom culture where students are encouraged to work collaboratively with their peers. I look for ways to encourage critical thinking opportunities in my classroom where students are asked to analyze and apply new information to real world issues and situations. I believe in hands-on, project based learning where students are intrinsically motivated and engaged in the learning process.
