I'm in my tenth year of teaching at the very elementary school where I was taught. What a rewarding experience it has been. I am a fifth grade teacher, and while getting my master's degree I taught K-5th special education. Before becoming a teacher I worked in the public relations field.
My teaching style is one of high expectations for myself and my students. I enjoy teaching through a hands on approach. I try to mix creativity, discovery, and problem solving in each task we undertake. Sometimes that turns out as chaos, but we give it a good effort!

I am the daughter of two educators, and the daughter in law of an educator. So I guess you can say it runs in the family. I am married to a nice southern gentleman and we have a two year old little boy who keeps us on our toes, and another on the way! Blog Author: www.simplysprouteducate.com
