TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching 5th grade 27 years ago. I started out with a 4th /5th grade split class. While, challenging, I had a great group of kids. 15 years ago I received my Masters in Administration, but I still remain in the classroom. That is what I enjoy the most. 10 years ago, I took a beginner Chinese class. Since that time, I have continued to study Chinese. I have taught it for many years in my general classroom, during the summer school program, and during a Saturday school program for 4th and 5th graders. The kids really enjoy the program.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Reading novels, teaching math and teaching Chinese are my favorite subjects. Many lessons I teach as a whole group, and some subjects like reading are taught in small groups. I love to challenge my students and help them accomplish things they didn't think they could do.
