I have taught 2nd grade for 11 years and third grade for 1 year. I was a centers specialist and reading specialist for 4 years. Currently I am the math coach for k-6. This makes a total of 17 years teaching experience! Wow, what a journey it has been!
Because I teach primarily second language learners my teaching style is very explicit and relies heavily on visuals, vocabulary, graphic organizers, verbal scaffolding and student engagement.
I was a first year, teacher of the year finalist. I have been nominated by my colleagues for teacher of the year five times.
Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Master's Degree in Bilingual Multicultural Education with an emphasis on special education and technology ESL Endorsement
Hello, I'd like to share a little bit about myself. After 17 years of teaching, I can honestly say that I love what I do. Each year brings a journey unlike no other and that is why I teach. I have been happily married for 19 years. My husband is also a teacher which helps provide a super support system for times of success and struggles. Having the same work schedule is also a PLUS! We have three children which means our live are pretty active. I am so glad you took the time to visit my profile. Smiles, Tracy
