TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The past 28 years of teaching have flown by! I started out in primary grades for 10 years, but have been teaching 4th grade for the past 18 years! My schools include a Title 1 school with English Language Learners, a gifted and high ability magnet, and a couple of charter schools. I have also taught multiple subject credential/teaching methods courses at several universities, give workshops throughout the state, as well served as a mentor teacher for most of my teaching career. I have been a National Board Certified Teacher since 1999.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My students know my favorite saying is, "Explain your thinking!" Being able to articulate (orally and in writing) their learning process is crucial for students to grow and develop. I truly believe in hands-on exploration so children can gain a clear understanding of concepts and connections between ideas. My teaching style is to teach the whole child; depth over breadth!
