I've been teaching since 2002. I've taught K, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades. I really love 1st grade!
I love to do hands-on activities and create things that help my students grow and learn.
I was featured in an NEA video that was filmed at the first school I taught at in Maryland. The school was being recognized for their scores on state testing despite the demographics of the students. They spent the day visiting classrooms and then chose three classrooms/teachers to film and interview that they believed demonstrated the reasons why the students at the school achieved such good scores. It was an honor to be chosen!
I graduated from college in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in early childhood education, elementary education and psychology. I am currently working on my master's degree in early childhood literacy.
