Moreover, formal and informal assessments are essential in determining students? strengths and weaknesses, and should be used in adapting instruction to meet their needs within a structured environment.
I have also been teaching in a sixth grade general education classroom, and multi-grade level resource room in an elementary school, where I used state mandated curriculum and both formal and informal assessments to differentiate instruction to the various learning needs of students.
Additionally, I volunteer for the Coast Guard as a liaison between the command and spouses, where I assist in their transition into the area, and provide guidance in discovering resources available to them. Finally, I am a contributing member of National Public Radio and the Cranbrook Science Center. I also have a continued passion for cooking, health and fitness.
