I attended a school in Tennessee and moved back to Texas after graduation. I got my first position in Special Education teaching 1st through 5th grades in English Language Arts, Reading and Math in the Resource classroom. The next year (2010-2011 school year) I moved to first grade and I have been there ever since.
The majority of my teaching happens in differentiated small groups. Within my classroom I use the Daily 5 and CAFE strategies, as well as balanced literacy approaches, to teach Reading.
