I'm currently teaching first grade and I LOVE it. I've also taught 7th, 2nd, 5th, and 6th. I have put my most memorable lessons from the grades that I have taught.
I love creating hands on, fun, visual, and interactive lessons that not only engage my students, but create an even deeper love for learning.
I have been honored to be able to teach a wide array of areas, grades, demographics, and ability levels. From my first year teaching 90% English Learners to the following year having 70% of my students on an IEP, and now teaching a predominately Gifted population, has given me an incredible understanding of how to try to best reach every student. I love supporting and challenging all learners to their fullest ability.
I hope next year to go for National Board Certification, as I will be eligible after completing year three of teaching,
Outside of teaching, I love soccer, camping, hiking, going to the beach, and spending time with my wonderful and supportive husband.
