This is my ninth year teaching 5th grade! I'm always looking for ways to make learning fun and keep the curriculum rigorous and challenging for all learners.
I love hands-on activities. I do a lot of manipulatives in class and try to make learning as interactive as possible!
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's in Reading in Literacy, although most days, I learn the most from my students!
