I have taught 5th grade at a Title 1 school in the Mukilteo School District, a suburb of Seattle, WA for 16 years. I gave up my position this year to cover plan times and teach art and technology to K-2.
Lessons should be creative, hands on, and visually stimulating. Learning should be easy! Teaching should be painless!
My math resources have been shared throughout the Mukilteo School District 5th grade to assist teachers in using visual models throughout the curriculum.
BA in Elementary Education from Washington State University MA in Incorporating the Arts in Education from Lesley University
I live with my husband and kitty-cat in Lake Stevens, WA. We enjoy traveling and motorcycling during my time off in the summers.
