In 2006, I student taught in a dynamite 3rd grade classroom in Tallahassee, FL. I had two incredible mentor teachers that really influenced my teaching style. My first "official" teaching job was in Boise, Idaho. I taught morning and afternoon Kindergarten for a year. I swore I'd never teach another grade because I loved Kindergarten so much! In 2008, I moved to Texas and began teaching first grade. I recently accepted a position as an Instructional Specialist in Reading & Math (K-2) for my district.
