I taught 5th grade for 4 years in San Antonio, then 4th grade for one year in Austin. I'm moving back to 5th grade Science and Social Studies for 2013-2014!
I differentiate instruction as often as possible with small learning groups and stations. I try to incorporate labs and investigations, vocabulary study, and discussion about concepts into each science unit.
I'm excited to be on the Top Sellers lists on TpT and know that I've been able to help so many teachers and students! I read all of the feedback I receive and am blown away by the kindness shown by my TpT followers.
I have my B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and have my M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from UTSA.
I'm a full-time teacher and a full-time blogger. When I have time, I love to travel! I'm working toward developing fun professional development opportunities for teachers.
