I have been teaching for 8 years and have absolutely loved it! I started by teaching three years in fifth grade. My third year, I taught all of the fifth grade math which was nice because math is the subject I am most passionate about. Then, our school lost a bunch of teachers due to budgeting and I just had enough years to stay at my dream school-just in a different grade. I am now in my sixth year of third grade and love it just as much as I loved fifth grade (kids are kids). The best part about teaching is waking up and actually wanting to go to my job everyday!
Whatever works best for the students!!
I have a lot of completed workshops, but I guess those aren't honors and awards!! I do consider the fact that I got my National Boards on my first try an honor - and a relief!!

I recently had a beautiful baby girl. I got to take half of the year off to stay with her. It is amazing to watch her grow and develop. This next school year will be bittersweet because I have missed teaching, but I will miss her tons!! I know all of you parents understand that! I love to hike in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina! I have lived here all of my life and have enjoyed it very much. I also love singing, Sunkist, anything with chocolate and peanut butter together, and most sports - especially basketball.
