TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for 14 years in fourth and fifth grades.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am always seeking new ways, and the "oldies but goodies" that get forgotten, to keep learning exciting for me and the kids! Fifteen years have flown by and I don't seem to ever do the same thing twice. There's always another way and that's what keeps teaching fun!
