I have been teaching in a Title 1 school third grade for three years, and a split class of second and third for one year. I taught first grade for my student teaching for several months. I have been a pre-service mentor for two years, and an in-service mentor serving on leadership for two years.
My teaching style is a balance of teacher-led and student-led. I enjoy building lessons that are structured but with choice and technology. Students are given clear parameters for how our class is organized and are then allowed to learn and do that they need to do within those parameters. I'm a big advocate for restorative practices and flexible seating.
