I am certified to teach K-8th grade. My first year of teaching, I taught science to 150 8th graders! Teaching first grade is where my heart is, and I've been fortunate enough to teach firsties for the past five years.
I like to make learning hands-on, kid-friendly, and interesting! I teach as much as possible by using a workshop approach. Some of my "teacher idols" are Debbie Miller, Lucy Calkins, and Sharon Taberski!
