I am currently a 2nd Grade teacher with a passion for curriculum. I have experience in grades K-2 and I'm in my 6th year of teaching.
It is my belief that children learn best in a safe, loving and nurturing environment. When you blend this type of environment with quality teachers and resources, the possibilities are limitless!
Model Educator Award 2011-2012 Teacher of the Year 2011-2012
I am a certified elementary K~6 teacher. I have an additional bachelors degree in Criminal Justice.
Teaching is more than what I do it's part of who I am. I am continually trying to educate myself so that I can be a better teacher for my students. My heart is in first grade and I'm thankful to spend my days doing what I love. Being able to share resources from my classroom with teachers around the world via my blog Teach It With Class and Teachers Pay Teachers is something that I am still in awe of.
