Being an elementary school teacher is a highly rewarding profession. Building the academic foundation of young minds is incredibly worthwhile. I love seeing my students learn and thrive, it is the most rewarding feeling in the world.
I have many years of experience teaching in the primary grades in a school district. I have a love for reading and I enjoy seeing my students become independent and confident readers. My areas of expertise is Balanced Literacy. I have many hours of professional development in reading comprehension, decoding and fluency. I have mentored other teachers in my school and taught them how to teach reading to their students.
I recently piloted a new math program in my school. I taught the other teachers how to implement our Math series and instruct their classes. I believe a "hands on" approach is very successful in grades K through 2nd grade.
