I am entering my fourth year teaching intermediate grades (1 in 3rd, 3 in 5th) in an urban school in Chattanooga, TN.
I love to teach using engaging, hands on activities. All of my resources are closely aligned to the state standards. I do not "teach to the test," but I do make sure that all assignments cover the standards.
I was awarded High Performing Teacher Bonus for my first year and third year teaching. I have been Level 5 (Most Effective) in Math all three years of teaching.
I received my Bachelor's degree in 2009.
