I am one of Eastside's Resource teachers. This is my third year at E2 as a resource teacher. I love the students and staff that attend our school. I grew up in Terre Haute, IN and moved to Muncie to attend Ball State University. There I graduated with an elementary/special education degree. I love to craft, explore the outdoors, cook, travel, and spend time with my fur babies (Chloe and Rory). Children bring such joy and I love to see how each child grows throughout each year, knowledge and personality.
In my classroom, I like to use the Read Naturally program and the Mountain Math/Language program. I believe these programs allow students to grow at their pace. It also allows students to see their progress and it motivates them to want to beat goals. It allows each student to learn with the style they learn best, involving hands-on learning,use of manipulatives, learning tips/tricks, and independent/group opportunities. I have attached the links to the programs websites for further explanations of the programs.
Last year, I was blessed to receive a grant from the mayor that gave my classroom new iPads and the OSMO program. My students have loved using the program. The program allows me to add material for the students to learn and records their progress as they play an activity. OSMO is an interactive iPad program that helps aid in reading, math, and other subjects. https://playosmo.com/en/
