I've been teaching for 8 years, and absolutely love it! I can't imagine doing anything else! I have experience teaching 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades. I've worked in a variety of different teaching models including: self-contained, inclusion (with push-in), co-taught inclusion, and co-taught self-contained. In addition I have my gifted endorsement.
Teaching begins and ends with classroom management, and the general organization of a classroom. My teaching style is based on a solid foundation of routines and procedures, high expectations, and a passion for seeing every child succeed in his/her own way.
