Welcome to Ms. Lee’s first grade ELA class! I am new to GVA and very excited about the new school year! I have been teaching for over 20 years with various ages and in different settings. I have a degree in Literary Studies and am certified in elementary education (K-6). As a Kinesthetic learner myself, I realize that all children learn differently and at different rates. I differentiate my teaching in order to meet the needs of my students. By using ongoing assessments and flexible grouping as well as tiered activities to allow my students to proceed with different levels of support, challenge and complexity. By providing interest centers, developing personal agendas and offering hands on materials I am able to engage students in instruction through different approaches to learning and varied interests. I’m looking forward to a fun and engaging new school year.
