I am a third grade teacher in Memphis, TN! I have taught lots of different grades. (8th, 7th, Gifted and Talented, 3rd/4th Looping, 2nd, and now back in THIRD) I truly love third graders. Independent enough to do things, but still young enough to be excited about everything we do!
A smart administrator once told me at a an interview..... A good teacher is not the star on the stage, but a guide on the side. That's me.... I don't lecture or talk a lot to the whole class. I like to let my kids be active learners.
Teaching keeps me very busy, but I also work as a TN Common Core Math Coach. I have really enjoyed learning from all of the amazing teachers all over the state and my teacher Deb from IFL with the University of Pittsburgh!
I attended Slippery Rock University a very, very, very long long time ago!
I am the mom to two great boys that are 19 and 12, don't forget kid #3... my husband! They keep me really busy. I am also the mom to two furry cats that are my babies and our newest addition a rescue dog named Dewey!
