Shannon Ditta is in her 9th year of teaching in the Department of Education in New York City. She has worked as a math teacher in grades 3,4,5 and 6 during that time! Last year she moved into an instructional coach role while also teaching fifth grade math. Shannon uses this role to meet weekly with grade teams to develop curriculum, analyze data and embed standards-based assessments. She is one of four coordinators for the PBIS program in her school which focuses on reaching every child and positive reinforcement. Together they create and implement activities that are used schoolwide to focus on social emotional learning. She’s excited to share her journey and continue growing and learning with you!
