TEACHING EXPERIENCE

30+ years in education: 19 years teaching Early Childhood Special Education (ECE 3-5 year olds), 4 years looping 1st to 2nd 4 years in 2nd currently a Reading Specialist RtI for K-2. I've enjoyed taking on the new challenges, re-inventing myself, and building upon my knowledge.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on, interactive, and supportive. My most important task has been to create a welcoming environment for students. I strive to meet students where they are and adjust to fit their needs, yet challenge them to reach to learn more.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I was growing up, I always wished that I would grow up and become a teacher. My wish came try! With my TpT store, I wish to share my experiences and knowledge with other teachers. A while back, I had to look up Guam on the map because one of my resources was purchased by a teacher from Guam. I was in awe that my resources could impact students around the globe.
