This will be year 5 for me! Where has the time gone?! I am an elementary Life Skills teacher and loving every minute of it! I've taught in 4 different states and have experience ranging from classroom teacher to behavior interventionist. With talk of teaching to the test, I think it's important to teach from the heart, not the books.
Bachelor's in Special Education (N-12) and Elementary (K-6); Certified in Middle Level Math (7-9); Curriculum and Instruction; English as a Second Language.
Life outside of school for me includes being a 3rd-year newlywed and spoiling my adorable fur babies: Zoie, a 4 year old miniature dachshund and Jaxon, a 2 year old chocolate lab.
