I have love teaching for the past 10 years! The majority of my teaching has been in grades 4th through 6th and I'm currently teaching 4th grade. I have worked in both the middle school and elementary school setting, loving both types of schools. I am GATE-certified and enjoy incorporating choice and creativity into my lessons. I love working with children and learn from them every day!
I love creative assignments and choice. I try to utilize multiple intelligences learning styles whenever possible! I love to let my students read from the carpet (even in sixth grade) or sit on their desks to change up their perspective. I love using the Socratic Method with my students.
I was awarded a provost scholarship during my undergraduate degree and offered a fantastic fellowship for my graduate education program!
I studied creative writing during my undergraduate studies. I've taught gifted middle school students and mainstreamed elementary school students. Now I teach fourth grade students! Prior to teaching sixth grade, I was a reading specialist who worked with high-school immigrants who read at the kindergarten level. I've had a variety of experience!
I love reading, creative writing, working out, swimming in the ocean, and being around positive people!
