TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 15 years. I began teaching in 2003 and taught first grade. For the past 14 years I taught sixth grade and fourth grade, in a K-6 school, and currently teach 3rd grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe successful engagement in the classroom begins with students taking charge of their learning. Allowing students to understand the "why" through their own processing, thinking, and evaluating, helps to develop and further shape their minds.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Students contacting me years later to say thank you. Those are my shining moments.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors of Science in Education from Illinois State University.
