My teaching style integrates hands-on learning with independent strategies. We sing, dance, and move frequently during transitions to keep their little bodies busy. Small math groups and literacy rotations are both used for collaboration between peers. I enjoy data and technology.
I enjoy teaching units that involve a balance of reading and literacy skills that make connections in science, social studies and mathematics. I teach in southern Indiana. I taught first grade and now teach kindergarten. I have been trained in Simple 6 Writing, Writer's Workshop, PBIS, Six Traits, DIBELS, mClass Math, reading strategies, Four Block, Literacy Groups, Literature Circles, and Simple 6 Math.
