I have been teaching for 25 years. Most of the years were spent in the regular education classroom in fourth and fifth grade . Currently I am teaching ELL 3rd through 5th grade. My experience in the ELL classroom has allowed me to work with students in small groups and on a one to one basis. This has enhanced my professional skills in reading, literature and writing. I understand the individual needs of students, and have a multitude of techniques to encourage and support students. I also work closely with regular education teachers in grades 3-5. When students are experiencing difficulties in content areas, I have many strategies to help them become more successful in the classroom. I have a great interest in reading and literature and can inspire the most reluctant readers.
