This is my seventh year of teaching. I have attended many professional development classes including 3 years in an American history teacher's program, I have received my technology endorsement, and I have been a presenter at my district's summer literacy institute twice. Blogging is my hobby and you can find me at www.whattheteacherwants.blogspot.com, I love creating resources for other teachers to use. I have been a seller on TPT for one year and have loved the new challenge that it brings.
I like to have fun with my students. I teach using hands-on, inquiry based lessons. I prefer collaborative learning and try to use technology as much as possible.
My principal called me 'Rookie of the Year' my very first year teaching. Does that count as an award? :) Chosen as my school's 'Teacher of the Year' in 2009. I have served as the grade level PLC leader for 6 years.
BS in elementary ed with a social studies composite minor. Technology endorsement.
