I graduated from Rhode Island College in 2010 with a teaching degree Grades 1-6. I have been teaching Grade One since then.
I have been teaching Grade One for the Providence School Department over the past five years, including math. I graduated with a Elementary Education degree, have an up to date teaching certificate and am currently enrolled in graduate courses at Rhode Island College. At an Elementary School I not only teach but offer tutoring after school to any students in need.
As a Grade One teacher, handwriting is an academic aspect that I entangle and infuse in all academic areas. I recently have been trained in a handwriting program called Handwriting Without Tears and obtained the materials to use with any needed children.
