I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and am licensed in Early Childhood Education. I have been teaching at a charter school for 5 years. I started out as a first grade teacher, then moved up with my class to 2nd grade. When our Kindergarten teacher left, I moved to fill the position. I have enjoyed all the lower elementary grade levels, but I absolutely love Kindergarten!
Without a curriculum at our school, I have had to develop my reading, writing, and math curriculum. While this is a lot of work, it gives me the freedom to teach how I want to teach! I enjoy creating hands-on activities, followed up with writing to show students thinking process throughout the activity. I like to give student's choice in as many areas as possible. My classroom is very interactive, busy, and sometimes loud as we learn together!
I am the lead teacher for the Foundations Level at our school. K-3.
Yet to be added
While I have taught at the same school for my 5 years, I am married to an Air Force pilot which means my life is now transitional. We will be moving this summer and again in the fall.Teacher Pay Teachers is a wonderful way to still be involved in education and share what I have created while being mobile. :)
