I have worked as a teacher's assistant for children aged 2-5, facilitated a middle school and high school after school program, completed an internship in a fifth grade classroom, student taught in a second grade classroom and have just landed my first teaching job as a 6th grade reading and comm. arts teacher!
I believe that in order for all students to be successful, they need to be engaged! When the bum is numb,so is the brain! I LOVE Cooperative Learning activities, brain breaks, anything hands on and teaching to as many learning styles as possible.
I graduated from college in December of 2011. I was on the Dean's List several times through out my college career and received many scholarships for academic achievement.
Graduated from college in December of 2011 with a BS in Elementary Education (1-6).
I am married to the love of my life who is a police officer. I do not have any children yet, but I do have a dog named Tater who honestly believes he is a "real boy." :)
