I began teaching in 2007 in a Pre-Primary Montessori classroom. After my year at the Montessori school, I switched to public school and spent a year teaching first grade. Currently, I am in my sixth year teaching second grade! I love teaching second grade because I enjoy seeing the amazing growth my students make throughout the year. I am passionate about the social and emotional growth of my students and recently received my School Counseling License and Professional Counseling License. I decided to start blogging because I love to collaborate and share ideas with other educators.
I create engaging lessons that incorporate many learning styles, technology, and creativity.
I serve as grade level chair and also participate in many district committees. I have received an Education Association Grant and a DonorsChoose Grant. I enjoy mentoring new teachers and helping other teachers with technology. I have also had the privilege of teaching internationally in El Salvador and Ghana.
