I am currently a Kindergarten/1st Grade combo teacher, but have previously taught 3rd grade and tutored preschool through 5th grade. I also have my Masters in Educational Administration, and am currently on a career path to move from teaching to instructional coaching.
I am a creative, artistic person, and I enjoy incorporating this into my teaching. Students need to be given multiple methods to access learning, and all learning styles need to be accommodated.
