TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am going into my third year of teaching second grade and absolutely love it! I taught preschool for a year before beginning in second grade. I have student taught in both fifth grade and second grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a hands-on teacher. I enjoy teaching engaging lessons with center work and fun activities for the kids. Songs, catchy poems and engaging activities are some of the tools I use to teach my second graders in my classroom.
