I started out teaching preschool in 2007. In 2011, I moved to 5th grade. Wow! What a transition!
Hands-on, Montessori-esque (with a dash of technology), I'm in a program that is sort of like eMINTS.
I attended Joplin schools from kindergarten through high school graduation (minus one year spent in a private school in St. Joseph, MO). I briefly attended Hendrix College in Conway, AR, but graduated with my elementary education degree from Missouri Southern State University.
I just completed my second year of teaching! Next year, I will be teaching reading and writing to 5th graders.
