Hello! This upcomming school year will begin my tenth year of teaching. In my classroom, students work in cooperative groups to explore concepts within the content areas. I also use the Open Court Phonics Program to teach word attack skills.
With computers in my classroom, I am able to infuse technology into
the curriculum with the use of Orchard; this program provides math and language practice for students on their individual levels. I am also able to assess reading comprehension and spelling through the Open Court online assessment package added at the end of the 2004-2005 school year.
There are many things that interest me. Currently, I like to scrapbook,
cross-stitch, travel, and build websites. When I'm not doing those things, my kids and I play at the park, zoo, or the backyard. My family consists of a husband, son, daughter, two dogs, two guinea pigs (given to me by a student), and one fish.
