Hi, I'm Katie! I've been teaching 3rd Grade for two years now and I have previous experience in Kindergarten and 2nd Grade. I also have experience in Special Education in the form of an inclusion class setting. I currently teach on Long Island, NY where I enjoy soaking up the ocean air.
I recently began teaching more subjects with a small group approach and it has changed my life! I'm a big advocate of guided reading/reader's workshop as well as guided math. I love how it allows me to reach ALL of my students where they are. Approach each day with a little more ~kindness~respect~creativity~hope~patience~
