I've been teaching for 8 years and think I have the best job in the world! I've taught 3rd and 4th grades and love developing curriculum and activities for my students.
I try to create engaging yet rigorous lessons that inspire students to think critically and outside the box. I incorporate a variety of teaching strategies to meet the diverse needs of my students. I also try to find that balance between conceptual understanding and basic skills which is often a challenge.

Outside of teaching, developing curriculum, and blogging, I love spending time with my husband and two children. My daughter is almost four and my baby boy is growing up fast.
