TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have eight years of overall teaching experience, five of which were at a Title I school. I taught three years in first grade and two years in second, and am currently teaching 3rd grade and loving it!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like things to be as hands-on and real as possible. We've created a class store to learn about economics, a pizza shop to practice fractions, etc. I want students to have opportunities to learn in many different settings and formats: individually, with a partner, in small groups and whole group. I emphasize teamwork and problem solving in my classroom, both academically and socially.
