I have been a 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade ELA teacher for the last ten years. Currently I serve as an instructional coach, serving 3rd-5th grades, primarily for reading and writing.
I am a lover of Balanced Literacy, individualized instruction and lots of small group. I believe in the power of one-on-one conferences and of a teacher truly knowing and addressing the needs of each of their learners.
Presented at the 2015 SCASA Innovative Ideas Institute about building teacher leaders and about the power of a maker's faire and STEM integrating science, math, and technology with reading and writing.
