I have been a teacher for 11 years. I've taught PreK through high school. Most of my teaching experience has been in fifth grade.
I like to use activities that engage the students in problem-solving for real-life scenarios. I take inventory of student interests and plan accordingly. Most of my materials are a minimum of three days, but generally are a bit longer. They can be shortened or lengthened according to your needs.
I have been chosen to speak at a district symposium for teachers to help convey best practices. I have served as grade chair on my grade level.
I majored in elementary education. I have attended multiple training sessions to strengthen my understanding of best practices and to delve into Common Core standards.
I have taught at my current elementary school for the past four years. I love my position as a fifth grade teacher at a Title I school. I believe I have learned a great deal about myself and about teaching at my current position. I'm excited to share what I've learned through the materials I create and post in my store.
