I started out my teaching career in Middle School but switched over to Elementary after two years and have been enjoying the upper Elementary Grades ever since. I try to incorporate my knowledge of Middle School curriculum and expectations in all that I do at the Elementary level to help prepare my students for what they will encounter after they leave the Elementary level and move forward.
I am a whole brain thinker and I have a whole brain teaching approach.
My degree was obtained in Wisconsin as well as my first teaching certification. When I moved to North Carolina two years ago I got certified down here as well. I am licensed to teacher Kindergarten through Ninth grade and have an emphasis in Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Mathematics.
I love what I do and I love sharing what I know with others.
