I am currently in my 9th year of teaching. In my first year of teaching, I was a reading center/Title 1 teacher. All of the other years, I have spent in 3rd grade. It is truly my favorite age group. I couldn't imagine doing anything else!
I am very focused on student led learning. I was asked this year to pilot a new reading program, National Geographic Reach for Reading. I fell in love with the program and it turns out that my district has selected it to be the next reading curriculum! I get to finish the year with the program and help train teachers to prepare for next year.

I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with my Bachelor of Science in Education with a focus on Early Childhood Education. I am licensed to teach K-3 in the state of Ohio. I also graduated from Walden University with my Master's degree with a focus on Elementary Reading and Literacy.
A couple little side notes... I have an amazing husband who supports me 100% in whatever I am doing. I have two doggie children, Boxers, named Blaze and Roxy. I absolutely love Summer! We are a huge boating family. I have recently taken up running as a hobby. I completed my first 5K this year. I plan to keep it up and work my way up to a half marathon!
