I have been teaching for the past six years, the majority of which have been in 3rd grade with a quick year in 2nd. My previous experience in a very high needs Title I school has truly shaped me as the teacher I am today.
My style includes a variety of student collaboration, enrichment, and creativity. I use a lot of Conscious Discipline strategies as well as Responsive Classroom approaches throughout my day to keep the students ready and excited to learn! I am a strong believer in small group instruction in order to differentiate in both math and language arts.
Root's Teacher of the Year 2015-2016
