I have been teaching for nine years and have worked in a variety of settings. I have experience in the general education and inclusion settings, as well as having been a special education teacher in a self-contained behavior classroom and a resource teacher. I truly love the upper elementary kiddos, and currently am currently an elementary instructional coach.
Certifications: Elementary Education, Special Education, ESL, Gifted Education, and Administration
My teaching style varies a little each year depending on my students. I do my very best to be an out-of-the-box teacher who focuses on fun, rigorous learning.
I am very interested in finding what makes learning engaging for students, and I utilize many different techniques to support my learners. Differentiation and classroom level intervention are two of my strengths.
